Courgette and Basil Soup

For the great January reset I am making this green and fragrant courgette soup. This is one of my go-to suppers. It's bursting with healthy fibre, vitamins, and minerals and is one of the best zucchini soup recipes ever from @myskikitchen. πŸ’šπŸ²πŸ’š The delicate taste and sponge-like quality of courgettes aka. zucchini mean that they can become a vehicle for a myriad many flavours, even one as delicate a basil in this soup. Use real stock for the best flavour and optimal health benefits. ⭐️ Follow @myskikitchen on Instagram for more easy recipes that are nourishing and delicious.
