Do you fancy a tasty soup that fits perfectly with the winter season? Here is an ideal recipe for you! The recipe comes from the book 'Simple' by Yotam Ottolenghi. Let this hot soup inspire you!

INGREDIENTS (for 8 people)

~ 75 ml olive oil, plus extra to add
~ 1 garlic bulb, cloves detached and peeled
~ approx. 6 courgettes, in 3 cm thick slices (1.3 kg)
~ 1 litre vegetable stock
~ 500 g frozen peas
~ 200 g feta, broken into 1-2 cm chunks
~ 1 lemon: grate 1 teaspoon of zest
~ salt and black pepper

TO DO

  1. Put the olive oil in an extra-large saucepan and place over medium to high heat. Add all the garlic cloves and fry regularly, stirring for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Add the courgette, 2 teaspoons salt and plenty of pepper and fry for another 3 minutes, stirring until the courgette starts to brown. Pour the stock into the pan with 500 ml of water and bring the soup to a boil over high heat. Let it cook for 7 minutes until the courgettes are tender but also bright green.
  2. Add the peas and stir for 1 minute; add the basil. Remove the pan from the heat and mash the soup with a blender until smooth and bright green.

Divide the soup among eight bowls and sprinkle with feta and lemon zest. Finish off with freshly ground pepper and a drizzle of oil.
