This deliciously fresh and super green soup I’m happy to say is made from nearly all just picked ingredients from the garden or Andy’s dads allotment. It came about as I came home to find the most enormous courgette I’ve ever seen (and round!) in the kitchen. Clearly the only thing to be done was to make some soup; however as I didn’t have many other ingredients some creatively was called for.
So, some spring onions, rocket and basil from the garden and some organic frozen peas for some protein, sweetness and to make the soup more substantial.
I’m really pleased with the result; delicious and super healthy. Yay!
I don’t know about you but I used to be slightly nervous about making soup – I’ve really got no idea why as they are the easiest things to make ever as you just can’t go too far wrong if you start with onions, garlic and veg stock as a base and then use one key veg. For example; tomatoes, butternut squash, carrots, peas, courgette, sweet potato, parsnip, broccoli and then add in lots of herbs and season really well. I always like to add in some pulses, beans, nut butter, tahini or seeds for protein, texture and crunch.
