This simple Leek and Courgette Soup is super delicious, chunky and vegan! Perfect for lunch or as a starter.
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!
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!
As this dish is so thrifty, seasonal and used up ingredients left in the fridge I’m entering it into:
