Thrifty Thursday – Easy Courgette Soup

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my terms & conditions for more info.

My Thrifty Thursday for this week involves this bad boy…

BIG Courgette

It is a hugely overgrown courgette that was given to us (for FREE) by a lovely fellow allotment owner. I have been staring at it for the last two days wondering what on earth I was going to do with it and today I found a solution- an easy courgette soup.

Now please bear with me as I am not the worlds best cook and not really a foodie blogger but I will do the best I can.

Easy Courgette Soupย 

Courgette, Potato & Mature Cheddar Soup

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Serves 8


500g potatoes, unpeeled and chopped

3x veg stock cubes

1 kg courgette, roughly chopped

1 onion finely chopped (I used red but you can use white or spring if you prefer)

100g extra mature cheddar, grated

sprinkle nutmeg (I used dried but fresh is properly better)

Courgette Soup

What To Do

  1. Put potatoes in large pan with just enough water to cover them. Add the stock cubes. Bring to the boil and then cover. Cook for 5 mins.
  2. Add the courgettes, put theย lid back on cook for further 5 mins. (You may need to add more water at this point)
  3. Put onions in, cover and cook for another 5 mins.

This recipe is great because not only is it healthy and tastes lovely but the leftovers can also be frozen for another day, so no wastage.
