This is a very simple and fast soup to make and super delicious!
I had a courgette soup before but found it pretty plain, so I thought I would add something to it to make it more flavoured. I just added some smoked bacon to it and it made a huge difference!
p.s. I have a sister who doesn't like courgettes but she loves this soup. I also had few people asking me to give them the recipe. So here it is!
Step 1: Ingredients
All you need is (for two people)
Two big courgettes
One pack of smoked, diced bacon with lard on
Half of one vegetable cube
Black pepper and crispy fried onions to garnish the soup with
Step 2: First Step
Put a bit of oil in a saucepan and add the diced bacon. Simmer for 5 minutes ( remove few scoops of juice from a saucepan if the bacon is too salty).
Add some diced courgettes and simmer for another 5 minutes.
Then add enough boiled water to slightly cover the mix (with tips of courgettes and bacon still poking out).
Step 3: Step 2
Bring the courgettes and bacon to boil, reduce the heat and add quarter or half of the vegetable stock. Stir well and leave to simmer for 15 minutes.
Step 4: Last Step
Blend courgettes and bacon after 15 minutes of simmering.
Garnish it with some black pepper and crispy fried onions.
