Leek and courgette soup

    50 min

    In this leek and courgette soup, I like to add an egg yolk mixed with milk to thicken it up a bit and make it creamy in texture. I simply cook the leek and courgettes in water until just wilted, but you can lightly saute them in a drizzle of olive oil if you prefer.

    1. Place cubes of courgette and the leek slices in a saucepan. Add 100ml water and a pinch of salt; cook on medium-low heat for about 20 minutes.
    2. Transfer the vegetable mixture into a blender and process until smooth. Transfer the pureed vegetables back into the saucepan; add stock and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
