Courgette and Lemon Soup

Courgette and lemon Soup

This is a genius combination of ingredients, the lemon really lifts the flavour of the courgettes, which can taste bland. Courgettes are an excellent source of vitamin C, plus vitamin K and some B vitamins. They are also rich in potassium and manganese making them a nutritional powerhouse! The lemon zest and juice adds to the vitamin C content….

Ingredients: (serves 4 plus extra)

1 red onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, chopped

6 medium courgettes, washed and sliced (skin on)

1 litre vegetable sock

zest and juice of 1 lemon

Method:

  • Heat a little oil in a pan then add the onion and garlic, saute until soft but not brown.
  • Add the courgette and continue to saute until soft.
  • Pour in the vegetable stock and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and add the lemon zest and juice, stir then blend until smooth.
  • Serve with a swirl of creme fraiche.
