Courgette, Pea and Basil Soup Recipe

Courgette, Pea and Basil Soup Recipe

Well, looks like winter has popped in uninvited, so instead of a salad recipe we had for you, here is a quick and simple soup that you can make on days like these.

Serves up to 8 kiwis

Ingredients

75ml olive oil
1 head of garlic (cloves separated and peeled)
About 6 courgettes (chopped into 3cm thick slices)
1l vegetable stock
500g frozen peas
50g basil leaves
200g feta (broken into small pieces)
1tsp of finely grated lemon zest
Salt & pepper

Method

1. Put oil in a large saucepan and place on a medium-high heat
2. Add the whole garlic cloves and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until they turn golden
3. Add the courgettes, 2 teaspoons of salt and lots of pepper and continue to fry (and stir) until starting to brown
4. Pour the stock and 500ml of water and bring to boil on a high head. Cook for 7minutes, until the courgettes are soft but still bright green.
5. Add the peas, stir through for 1 minute, then add the basil. Remove from the heat and using a blender or liquidizer, blitz the soup immediately until it is smooth. 
6. Serve topped with feta and lemon zest. Finish with a drizzle of oil and a good grind of pepper.
