Recipe : Creamy Cheese & Courgette Soup

So today I made this lovely soup for my lunch. I love homemade soups and because you’re making them, you know exactly what you’re getting. Plus they’re a really good way to get a portion of fruit and veg into your diet.

So the soup I made today is one of my favorites I used to make all the time at uni and can be easily adjusted to your taste.

I used 2 leeks, one and a half courgettes, a red onion and half a head of broccoli for this soup up and chopped them up into little chunks. Cut the red onion first then fry it off in the pan whilst you chop your other veg.

Then add 1 litre of boiling water to two vegetable stock cubes, stir then add the remaining veg and stock to the pan, bring to the boil then simmer until the veg is soft.

After all the veg is soft, blend together then add salt and pepper.

I then added a table spoon of creme fraiche, a table spoon of Philadelphia and about 100g of cheese. Stir in whilst the soup is still simmering.

And there you have it! Some lovely homemade soup. Let me know if you decide to try this 🙂
