Courgette Soup with Boursin Recipe Submitted by Pauline

Have been using my courgettes up on this soup as it freezes well.  It is very filling and very creamy – so watch the waistline!  The original recipe came from my neighbour and I added the onions and potatoes to make it more filling, but you could leave these out if you wish.

Ingredients for Courgette Soup with Boursin:

  • 2 lb courgettes
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 2 medium onions
  • 4  pints veg stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • one or two tubs of Boursin (or equivalent)

Method for Courgette Soup with Boursin:

  • Slice courgettes, peel and cube potatoes, peel and chop onions.  Add all ingredients (not the Boursin) into a very large pan and simmer for about 20-25 mins or until the veg are tender.
  • Put into a liquidiser and purée.
  • Return to pan and add the Boursin stirring until completely dissolved into the soup – depending on how creamy you like your soup depends on whether you use one or two.

This Courgette Soup with Boursin freezes really well. If you’ve not got Boursin, use any soft cream cheese and some mixed dried herbs to add flavour to the soup

Serves 6 (or 12 if you like small bowls as it is very creamy)

    would anybody know whether this soup can be made in large quantities and frozen (without the cream I guess)?
    Many thanks for your feedback.

  2. Val says:

    If you leave out the boursin this should freeze.I’m assuming that is what Pauline means when she says it freezes really well.

  3. Anne says:

    What a wonderful soup. I used only 2 1/2 pints of vegetable stock and it was perfect. Please please Val, a book on soups would be perfect to bring out in time for the Winter.

    I have been making a version of this wonderful soup for years without the potato but with only 1 150g packet of Boursin and with ½ pint of milk. It freezes with the Boursin cooked into it.
    This freezes exceptionally well and is a wonderful way of using your glut of courgettes especially the huge ones that lurk beneath the leaves and get missed when you are picking.

    I make this soup with a similar recipe and add a little fresh chopped rosemary towards the end of cooking. Mmmmmm!
