lovely. So easy and delicious . Served it with a poached egg in to make it a bit more filling. I used baby leaf spinach as I dont like courgettes. So nice the kids have already asked that I make it again

What a great soup this is; Lovely colour and so fresh tasting. I used a huge handful of rocket from the garden and a bag of watercress and made double quantity for lunch the next day and some for the freezer. I added 3 cloves of garlic and did not add the yogurt until it was served up wih an oven warmed baguette.

I thought this was a lovely soup, I didn't have Greek yoghurt so I used a bit of single cream. It was so fresh tasting. It's given me inspiration to make more soups.

Quick to make and really tastey. I can't find watercress in berlin so I replaced it with rocket, still tasted good.
