Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 large onion cut in chunks
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and whole
  • 1 large courgette peeled and diced
  • 1 carrot peeled and diced
  • 2 medium potatoes peeled and diced
  • 2 handfuls of spinach (optional)
  • 1 sprig of parsley
  • Water (approximately 1 litre)
  • Sea Salt

Method

    1. In a large pan fry the onion and the garlic with the olive oil.
    2. Add the remaining vegetables and let it cook for a little bit more stirring and mixing the flavours.
    3. Add the water (preferably hot) and the parsley.
    4. Season with salt and let it boil for half an hour.
    5. Blend the soup until creamy (I use a hand blender for soups).
    6. Optional: add chopped runner beans and boil the soup for another 15 minutes.
    7. Serve straight (healthy option) or add grated cheese to impress. Black pepper also goes well.

I eat soup everyday and this one I made it to use the courgettes, spinach and broad beans from the garden. In case your courgettes are oversized just cut the courgette in half and seed it with a spoon.
