Courgette Soup Recipe

Courgette Soup Recipe

I use this courgette soup recipe when I am having a dinner party and without fail someone always asks for the recipe. It is a pale green, elegant soup which can be dressed with a dollop of sour cream and chopped chives for extra panache.

600 g young courgettes, sliced in rings
12,5 ml melted butter
12,5 ml oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 rashers of bacon left whole

Top and tail the courgettes. Melt the butter and oil in a large pot. Sweat the chopped onion and the bacon. When soft, add the sliced courgettes. Saute gently for 5 minutes.


750 ml seasoned chicken stock
250 ml milk
2 ml onion salt (ordinary will do)
5 ml sugar
2 ml mild mustard

Simmer, half-covered, about 15 min or till soft. Remove from stove, and remove the bacon.


125 ml skimmed milk powder. Liquidize till smooth. Either reheat gently and serve, or chill thoroughly. Finish off by adding chopped chives and a teaspoon of thick cream to each bowl.
