Marrow Or Courgette / Zucchini Soup Recipe

Shares

I’m quite fond of courgette (zucchini), lightly fried with anchovy and pine nut, or steamed, or frittered, but it took getting a 3.5kg (7lb7oz) courgette from a friend of mine recently to get me to try courgette soup, and it is without doubt my favourite soup ever, hands down.

Courgette Soup


It is so simple to make too, that it can actually be whizzed up in no time. If you need a quick and delicious dinner, and don’t know what to do with that end of season marrow, zucchini or courgette surplus, look no further. If you don’t love it, I’ll … well, I’ll eat it!

Personally, I adore this with some cream, but if you’re trying to keep the calories down, I find it quite fresh and thoroughly enjoyable with some salt and pepper.

This also freezes very well,

I can not stop talking about this soup. I'm not a huge soup fan, and eat it largely out of ease or need, but this soup? Well, it can move in, quite frankly! I love it. Serve with fresh home made bread (or not) and top with dehydrated courgette strips, or perhaps crispy bacon.

    Great and very simple recipe. Think about it that zucchini and pumpkins are related and you come up with more great ideas and variations. I prefer the soup thicker with less water, chunky pieces and diced fried bacon.

      Ooh, I think the bacon would be lovely, but chunky soups are not my thing at all. I need to be able to drink my soup through a straw if I want to! (Not that I do, but it needs to me smmoooooootttthhhh.) I could do crispy bacon on top. That would be yum!
