Delicious soup! I added the rind from a piece of Parmesan which I save in my freezer Then remove before liquidising. This gives a lovely depth of flavour

Simple and tasty. Loved it and have made it several times either for a light lunch or a dinner party starter

I pan fried the onion, cougette and addedd some garlic to give colour and a bit more flavour, then added it to the stock with the pots and simmered until soft - just stirred the rocket through just before blitzing! Very yummy - maybe not tasting of courgette but very nice!

Ok - but not that interesting. I did use shop bought rocket which doesn't have the same fire as home-grown stuff.

What a lovely, delicate, fresh, summer soup! I suggest a hint of lime zest and a few chilly flakes for a truly summery dish!

Excellent, Used chicken stock instead of the veg stock, added 2 cloves garlic, 2 small chillies and a bit of parmesan, really nothing like the original but really good and would definitely make again.

Made this soup last night as have loads of home grown courgette to use up! I added 2 chopped garlic cloves to the pan with the onion and stirred through grated parmesan at the end for extra flavour. It was yummy but could have been too bland for my taste without my added ingredients!

I loved this soup. Quick and easy to make and a great way to use up my surplus of home grown courgettes and rocket. I will definitely make more and freeze for using in the winter...

Made this today with rocket and courgettes from the garden, but upped the amount of rocket to 300g because I have so much. Came out very well and it's in the freezer now.

I made this soup ( but without the croutons ) for my lunch today and found it very tasty. I will definitely make it again, especially as it a useful way to use up the glut of courgettes in the garden.
