Ingredients

Gazpacho style green soup
  • 2 courgettes
  • 1 cup peas
  • 2 cup spinach leaves
  • 1 bunch of fresh basil
  • ½ onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper 

HOW TO MAKE SUPER GREEN SOUP

  1. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the roughly chopped onion and garlic for about 2 minutes, until the onion is soft and transparent.
  2. Chop the courgettes in small pieces.
  3. Add the courgettes and peas to the pan, after 2 minutes add 1 litre of water and cover. Cook for 5-7minutes.
  4. Add the spinach and basil, switch off the heat.  Leave it to rest for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Remove about ½ litre of water with a colander. This will make the soup more creamy, if you like it very watery you can skip this step.
  6. Blend everything finely.
  7. Add salt and pepper and serve hot or leave it cool down for an hour for a refreshing summer soup.
