The one with all the courgettes

OK, so my title lies a little.  They’re more marrows than courgettes! Either way, there’s a lot of them.  So, this morning has been spent searching for recipes to use them in, and acquainting myself with the finer points of OneNote (more on that in a later post I think)

The first culinary delight to be discovered was Courgette and Cheese Soup.  It was a success on many levels – it tasted good, it used nearly a whole marrow and it was simple to make.

Courgette and Cheese Soup

  • 500g courgettes, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 large onion, skinned and chopped
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 100g crean cheese
  • pinch of dried mixed herbs
  • 150ml single cream
  1.  Put the courgettes and onion in a large saucepan with the stock. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat, cover the pan & simmer for 20 minutes or until the courgettes are soft. Puree the soup in a blender.  Mix the the cheese and herbs in the rinsed out pan and gradually work into the pureed soup.
  2. Reheat the soup gently, stirring constantly, then add the cream and heat through without boiling. Add seasoning to taste.

There are quite a few more recipes on the Courgette page of my newly-created OneNote notebook, which I intend to try out and blog about – chutney, jam (?) and ratatouille are likely candidates for round two of Sue vs Marrow.
