What You Need

The quantities below are for the Ninja soup maker which has a capacity of 1.4L – but they can be adapted for any soup maker by adjusting the amount of courgettes.

  • Onion & garlic – I used 1 onion and 2 cloves of garlic
  • Courgettes – I used 750g of chopped courgettes, you can use more or less. If you don’t have enough courgettes you can add in a potato to make sure the soup has a thick enough consistency.
  • Vegetable stock – I used a stock pot but you can use a cube, powder or your own homemade stock. I topped up with hot water to the MAX line in the soup maker.
  • Basil – I used a large handful of fresh basil leaves, these were blended in at the end.
  • Optional for serving – courgette and basil soup tastes delicious with some grated parmesan cheese stirred in.

If you want to make a thicker and creamier soup, stir in some cream before serving.
