COURGETTE AND PEA SOUP

Another one of my out of the blue health conscious days and there were courgettes in the fridge. Usually a cold cucumber soup would sound good, but on a rainy cold day this warm soup seemed a better option.

This is what you’ll need

Butter: 2tbsp

Courgettes: 2 (cubed)

Onions: 2 (small)

Peas: 250gms

Vegetable stock: 1 litre

Coriander leaves: Few

Garlic: 2 cloves (crushed)

Salt and pepper to taste

Let’s get cooking

1. Melt the butter in a pan.

2. Add the finely chopped onions along with salt. Cover and cook until soft.

3. Add the chopped courgettes and the garlic. Fry for a couple of minutes.

4. Add the vegetable stock, peas and coriander leaves.

5. Cover and let it cook for around 10 minutes, or until the peas are soft.

6. Once the mixture is cool, puree in a mixer.

7. Remove in the pan, add salt and pepper and bring to a boil.

8. Serve with grilled bread slices or bread sticks.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 50 minutes

Serves: 4
