Courgette-Dill Soup
It’s courgette (zucchini) season! If you grow them, you usually end up with a lot of them! Use the recipe for this soup if you are after a quick lunch dish. Serve with bread or a cracker if you like. Freeze leftovers for later use.

Recipe Notes
  • I have used green courgettes/zucchini for this recipe, but you can use the yellow ones as well. Or a mixture of both. Just leave the skin on, it will add extra colour and taste.
  • The starch contained in the potatoes thickens the soup a little bit. If you like your soup to be more creamy, you can add some cream.
  • Experiment with veggies and add some (frozen) peas or spinach to the soup.
  • Freeze in portions for a quick lunch!
