About this recipe: 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.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 medium courgettes, cubed
  • 2 leeks, finely sliced
  • 1L vegetable or chicken stock
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 200ml milk
  • 4 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 small bunch fresh parsley, chopped

  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.
  3. Beat the egg yolk with the milk and add to the soup. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring often. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  4. Remove from heat; add parsley and grated Parmesan cheese. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil for extra flavour.
