Soupe a la Courgette (Zucchini Soup)

Soupe a la Courgette (Zucchini Soup)

With the weather cooling down a bit I was feeling like having a soup. I was not looking for a heavy soup and luckily zucchinis are still around. I had been meaning to try this zucchini soup recipe for a while now. One of the reason that I wanted to try this recipe was that I wanted the try the La Vache Qui Rit cheese. The soup was a really nice green colour until I added the cheese and pureed it. After the cheese was pureed into the soup it became a much paler green. The colour was a bit disappointing but the soup still tasted great. The cheese added a really nice creaminess. The La Vache Qui Rit cheese is a very creamy cheese that is so soft that it jiggles and wobbles.

Never thought to put cheese into the courgette soup - you added it before pureeing?

Yikes, the recipe is a bit off. One small zuccini isn't going to make a soup, although it does explain why only one tin bit of cheese is used. The recipe I use is almost identical, no garlic, and I use an entire package of cheese! By the way, the recipe on this blog isn't Laura Calder's recipe....

For variation:

Try this same recipe, add bits of bacon, and use as a pasta sauce - ie: Pour over pasta for a rich delicious dish!
