Delicious! Really simple but really tasty. Made a huge batch and will freeze some.

What a great site. Wish I'd found it last year rather than throwing loads of stuff away that I didn't know what to do with. Thanks.

So simple to make and lovely flavour. Just added some bits of cooked chicken and a meal in its self.

Made this soup a couple of times. Last time I only used 1/2 pint of chicken stock (instead of 3/4) and found that this made a lovely thick soup with the same great flavour. Actualy preferred it to the original! So nice tasting that this will be our Xmas dinner starter!

I would like to start off by saying thank you. I made this last week for me and my husband as a starter and it was delicious, we both love it! I'm sure to make it again soon. Thank you once again.

Great recipe, we like it spicier so add a teaspoon each of chilli powder and ground ginger with the other spices and a can of coconut milk instead of fresh milk (or some of each) not too hot but very warming on a rainy day with the last of the courgettes! Definitely will be freezing some. Thanks for the inspiration!

Very very good soup, full of flavour. I also added the ginger and a few chilli flakes for heat and then balanced it with a good dollop of cream. Thanks for the recipe

Really fab soup. It was worth growing courgettes after all!

Was looking out for a new C recipe as struggling to get through our current crop. I used some overgrown ones and the result was superb. Will be cooking up a larger batch next for freezing ;-)
