Quick note to say plants arrived safely yesterday, are already potted up and basking in the greenhouse. I've had to purchase my tomatoes online for yrs, never been wholly satisfied with them when they arrived - usually spindly things that need a lot of faffing to get going. But these are amazing! At last, found a decent seller! Thank you. Kind regards.

    Courgette Soup Recipe

     (serves 4-6)

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil.
    • 1 oz (25 g) butter.
    • 1 large onion – roughly chopped.
    • 1 large garlic clove – crushed.
    • Small handful of oregano roughly chopped or 1 teaspoon dried oregano.
    • 2 lbs (1 kg) of courgettes, washed and sliced.
    • 1 pint of chicken or vegetable stock.
    • 4 oz (115 g) strong cheddar – grated (or for a milder flavour substitute 4 oz (115 g) of diced Dolcalette).
    • Salt and pepper.

    Method

    • Heat oil and butter in a large saucepan or boiling pot until foaming hot and throw in the onions and garlic.
    • Cook gently for about five minutes until soft but not brown.
    • Add the courgettes, oregano and a twist or two of pepper.
    • Stir well and cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently.
    • Add the stock and bring to the boil whilst stirring.
    • Cover and simmer for about thirty minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese until melted.
    • Allow to cool then liquidise to a smooth consistency.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.

     This is wonderful just as it is, but if you want to jazz it up for visitors, swirl in a little cream before serving.
