4 courgettes, 150g feta, 1/2 pint vegetable stock, 1/2 lemon, mint
I love soup. I find all the chopping, stirring and pureeing very soothing, the warm smells that fill the house comforting, and I love ladling out steamy bowls of soup for people to dunk hot crispy bread into, dressing it with ever more creative croutons or swirls of cream and yoghurt. This winter I have created 10 new soups to warm you through on a cold day. This soup is the perfect combination of Summer fresh flavours and comforting wintry texture.
1) Slice and dice the courgettes - discarding the tops and tails - and add into a pan with the vegetable stock.
2) Allow to simmer for 20 minutes, then strain and pulse thoroughly in a blender. Add back to the stock along with some freshly chopped mint and the juice of half a lemon.
3) Season to taste with salt and black pepper, then serve with cubes of feta.
