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)
