Tomato and courgette soup is a simple tasty and really easy to make soup. Nutritious and low cost you’ll want to add this to your quick healthy meals list, especially for lunch!
This tomato and courgette soup (or as my U.S. friends would know it, tomato and zucchini soup) was made from leftovers.
For this particular recipe I found I had some tinned tomatoes left over from another recipe so I threw a few things into a pot, blitzed them together and came up with this amazing soup!
Quick to make, and really light on the stomach too, it’s one I now make it a lot.
I reckon you might want to do the same too after tasting it.
Especially if you’re wondering what you can make with courgettes and tomatoes!
