Courgette Spinach Soup

Courgette & Spinach Soup 

One of my favourites with the goodness of Courgette and the added nutrition of Spinach.
          Very easy to prepare.


1 Medium sized Courgette . Washed and diced into cubes
1 Onion peeled, washed , chopped roughly
1 or 2 handful of Spinach .Washed 
1 small potato , peeled and chopped (Optional)
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Tip: Keep boiling water ready in kettle or a pan  to minimise cooking time

  1. In a medium sized pot, add oil.
  2. Add onions and fry for two minutes on low heat
  3. Add diced courgette (and potato ). Stir. Cook for 2-3 minutes
  4. Add hot water enough to cover the vegetables. Cover with a lid. Let it boil for 7 minutes. ( If you have a timer, please use it )
  5. Add spinach leaves, Salt and Pepper . Mix.
  6. Let it cook covered for further few minutes till the spinach is wilted but still green in colour. ( Over cooking will result in discoloured veggies )
  7. Blend with a hand blender till a smooth texture is obtained
  8. If desired, add some more boiling water.
Enjoy in a mug or a bowl with toasts, dry toast, crackers or as a starter.
