Leek and Courgette Soup

Leek and Courgette Soup - Fab Food 4 All

Gosh it seems like an age since I last posted a recipe (just over a week) but having 2 children home for the Easter holidays means getting some quiet time to myself has not been easy so hence the radio silence! I don’t know about you but after over indulging on chocolate over the Easter period all I want to do is eat lots of healthy vegetable based food. This Leek and Courgette Soup came about one lunch time when there wasn’t much left in the fridge so these ingredients just found each other and became soup!

Leek and Courgette Soup - Fab Food 4 All

The family were very impressed with my chunky soup creation so I’ll be making this again. I always feel better when I’ve given the family a healthy bowl of soup packed full of vegetables so it’s a win/win situation all round!

    I make a lot of soup and this is a combination that I have not thought of, must give it a try

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, it works so well:-)

  2. Maya Russell

    Love leeks but I’m not keen on courgettes so I would probably blend this soup. Lovely colour to the soup.

    1. Camilla

      That’s a shame, the chunks really make this soup:-)

  3. Elizabeth

    MMm loving the sound of this soup! Gorgeous colour too! Thank you for sharing with the No Waste Food Challenge!

      Thanks Elizabeth, it is a fab soup:-)

  4. Kavey

    As these are two of the vegetables we grow, this soup is very much the kind of recipe we would make and it looks delicious!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Kavey, wish I had green fingers where veg are concerned!

  26. Emma @ Supper in the Suburbs

    Easter weekend Asda went crazy and did huge bags of veg for just 29p. The other half went out for some broccoli and came back with all sorts including no less than 5 bags of leek. We used the last lot up tonight with THIS recipe 😀 it was so quick and easy. And delicious! Well done Camilla(but I am no all leeked out!)

    1. Camilla

      Fabulous Emma, great bargains and so glad you liked the soup:-)
