Courgette and Pesto Soup

Courgette and Pesto Soup

with goat's cheese and croutons

What at first may seem like a simple soup becomes something altogether more special when you consider its components. Crunchy croutons, a goat's cheese crumble and spoonfuls of rich and flavourful pesto are just some of the reasons you're going to love this dish.

  • Trim the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Halve lengthways, then thinly slice.
  • Chop the potato into small cubes (peeling optional). 
  • Run a peeler lengthways along the courgette to create thin ribbons (three per person). Cut the remaining courgette into cubes.
Soften the Veg

  • Raise the heat to high.
  • Add the chopped potato, boiling water, Middle Eastern spice and muscat to the pot.
  • Bring back to the boil, cover and cook for 10 mins over medium-low heat. 
  • Meanwhile, place a pan over medium heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Fry the courgette ribbons until tender, 4-5 mins. Turn halfway through.
Make the Croutons
4
  • Roughly tear the baguettes into 2cm chunks.
  • Pop onto a lined baking tray then toss with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Finish the Soup
