Courgette & Almond soup

Courgette & Almond soup
From ‘Avoca Soups’

This is a delicious soup – I got the recipe and a bowl from a trader at UL farmers market (Sarah at Chilli loco) – it’s creamy, mild and really tasty.

50g butter
1 onion, peeled and chopped
1 potato, peeled and chopped
600ml veg stock
3 courgettes, finely chopped
25g ground almonds
125ml double cream, plus extra to serve (could be single if fat conscious…)
125ml milk
Flaked almonds to serve

Melt the butter in a large pan, add the onion and potato and cook over a very low heat for 5 mins. Add the stock, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 mins or until the potato is cooked. Add the courgettes, bring back to the boil and simmer for 5 mins. As soon as the courgettes are cooked, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the almonds, cream and milk. Puree in a blender, then reheat gently and season to taste. Serve topped with a few toasted flaked almonds and a swirl of cream.
