I was asked for a fresh and light soup so I thought mint and courgette, not something I’ve ever thought about using in a soup before but I knew it would be fresh and light. I fell in love with this soup the second I tasted it! Give it a go.
3 medium courgettes, chopped
3 7inch sticks of celery, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
24floz (700ml) vegetable stock (made with 2 stock cubes)
Good handful of mint
salt and pepper
1.7oz (50g) butter
In a large pan over a medium heat, add the butter, onion and celery, cook for 3-4 minutes just to soften the onions and celery a little.
Add the courgettes, stir well and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, pour in the stock and season well with salt and pepper (this soup needs quite a lot of seasoning), turn the heat down to a simmer and cook for 25-30 minutes.
Add the mint then blend until smooth in a food processor or with a stick blender.
Cooking this is well worth it! Its so tasty and fresh!
