    About this recipe: I learnt this excellent recipe for creamy courgette soup while living with a 75-year old woman in Madrid. There is nothing to this recipe - it is easy, cheap and low in fat. If you like thicker soups, simply add another potato. Enjoy!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 5 courgettes
    • 2 potatoes
    • 1 large onion
    • 170g cheese triangles, such as Laughing Cow
    • 2 tablespoons chicken stock granules
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Method

    1. Clean and quarter courgette and potatoes. Peel and chop onion. In a large pot boil courgette, potatoes and onion in water (just covering them) until very tender. Drain vegetables, but retain stock.
    2. In a blender, or with an immersion blender, puree the cheese, courgette, potatoes, onion and stock granules while adding stock, until desired consistency is reached. This may need to be done in two batches if using a blender.
    3. Pour mixture back into large pot and bring to the boil. Salt and pepper to taste. If desired, garnish with croutons, paprika and chives. Delish!
