Courgette & Cheese Soup


One of the quickest and simplest recipes for soup I have come across, and tastes delicious!! An entry from our Great ‘Cooking Well Cook Off on our Diabetes course.


  • 2 courgettes
  • 2-3 light soft cheese triangles (e.g calvita)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Mixed Herbs (optional) to season


  1. Chop & Boil 2 courgettes with skin left on for 10-15 minutes
  2. Add 2-3 light soft cheese triangles to mixture and simmer for further 10-15 minutes
  3. Use a hand blender to blend mixture
  4. Add salt, pepper and mixed herbs to season

Can be placed in zip locked bags when cooled and put in freezer. Take out as desired and heat in the microwave as a lunch time choice, or keep in a flask in your car when on the go, to have between meals.
