Courgette Soup

This courgette soup recipes are perfect for packed lunches and light suppers. Take your glut of courgettes and turn it into a healthy, tasty and filling soup, made so easily in the Thermomix.

I love courgettes, I really do. One of my first memories of being able to cook was a courgette side dish, onions, tomatoes, garlic and courgettes sauteed in a little oil (or butter). Simple, so simple that I could enjoy it as a side dish, served on toast or just for the midnight munchies. So when I had kids and realised not everyone loves courgettes as much as me, I needed to be creative, creative enough that they would still eat courgettes but in a way they could consume it; courgette soup.

What I love about this soup is how thick and creamy it is, even before you add cream. The courgettes blend together to make the soup smooth and silky in texture. Therefore, if you want to make this soup dairy free you can easily skip the cream altogether and replace the butter with some olive oil. You can make the dish vegan, by using olive oil and no cream.

Courgettes are rich in minerals and vitamins that include potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and vitamin C. Its peel (which is blitzed into the soup) is a good source of dietary fibre which will help if your little one is suffering from constipation.
