This is so simple to make, and divine to eat. My husband has now nominated this as his favourite soup. I cooked twice the amounts in the recipe so that I could freeze several portions for a quick, easy and healthy meal later. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe :-) - 13 May 2014


Oh wow. I have just described this recipe as heaven food to a friend. Its seriously the nicest soup I think I've ever tasted. I ended up getting over excited and putting too much water in before pureeing, but it just tastes SO good, even thinner than I would usually like. Can't wait for work this week now, just because i get to eat this soup with crusty bread every day. TRY IT!! - 04 Mar 2015


What a fantasticly delicious way to use courgettes and fennel. The White wine adds something really special to this dish. We are obviously greedy as no way it would serve 6 though! - 16 Mar 2016
