Courgette and Feta Soup

20120209-191823.jpg
My fiancé – who hates courgettes – adores this soup. It’s simple and delicious – a favourite of ours in winter.

INGREDIENTS:
* 2 large onions, peeled and roughly chopped
* 2 potatoes, peeled and grated
* 10-15 baby marrows, sliced
* 1 chicken stock cube and 1 packet instant chicken noodle soup (this is the secret ingredient, just so you know)
* 750ml water
* 3-4 feta rounds/roughly 150-250g
* Sage, rosemary, garlic and salt to season

METHOD:
1. In a soup pot, fry the onions in a little salt (this stops them from browning) and garlic.
2. When the onions are translucent, add the sliced courgettes and grated potato. Stir lots to prevent the potato from catching on the bottom of the pot.
3. Add the rosemary and sage and crumble the chicken stock cube into the mix too.
4. Throw in the water and mix thoroughly after adding the packet of chicken noodle soup.
5. Cook on a low heat for 1-1.5 hours until the courgettes are mushy and the potato has thickened the soup.
6. Crumble the feta into the soup and let it cook until the feta has melted.
7. Use a masher/hand blender to smooth out the lumps/smoosh the last remaining courgettes.
8. Garnish with chopped spring onion and serve.

Delicious with garlic bread.

So what do you think – easy or what? Let me know if you try it!
