Method

  1. Put the potatoes in a large pan with just enough water to cover them and crumble in the stock cubes. Bring to the boil, then cover and cook for 5 mins. Add the courgettes, put the lid back on and cook for 5 mins more. Throw in the spring onions, cover and cook for a final 5 mins.
  2. Take off the heat, then stir in the cheese and season with the nutmeg, salt and pepper. Whizz to a thick soup, adding more hot water until you get the consistency you like. Serve scattered with extra grated cheddar, spring onions and nutmeg or pepper. Or cool and freeze in freezer bags or containers with good lids for up to 3 months.

has become one of my favourite soups as it freezes so well it has become a great midweek standby. So easy to make and I use tickler cheddar which seems to complement the courgettes perfectly

Really good soup! So fast and easy. I didn't even have the onions and it still worked out great.

Delicious soup. The only change that I made was to add a generous amount of Boursin with Garlic and Herbs during the blending instead of the Cheddar. I used the low fat one and it made a very creamy soup.

This soup is surprisingly delicious. I didn't have spring onions so I added some minced garlic from the cupboard. With Richard Corrigans brown soda bread it was absolutely sublime. Put leftover in freezer and I will define make it again.

Very easy and very good soup. I'm a bit surprised how good it is. I made sure to use some good quality mature cheddar and it really worked.

The soup is very easy to make. I added some Stilton cheese I had in my fridge and this gave a lovely taste. YUMMY!!!!

This soup is one of the simplest I have ever made and although there are not a lot of ingredients in it and it doesn't take a lot of time to make the result is fantastic. Will definitely be making this one again.

Made this last night and am very disappointed; though it smells really nice, it tastes so bland. Annoyingly I now have this for my lunch for the next 4 days, so need to do something to it tonight so it is better for tomorrow!! Will try more salt, pepper and possibly cheese.

I am about to make this soup but would like to know how you have calculated the calories per portion, as you have not given any water quantaties or how MLS per serving?
I am on a very strict calorie count and without this information your calorie suggestion could be completely wrong and missleading
