Zucchini, Sweet Corn and Basil Soup
Zucchini are very easy to grow and produce an abundant crop, so if you have them in your garden you’ll love adding this delicious recipe to your repertoire.
Heat the olive oil and butter in a large saucepan and add the onions and potatoes with a good pinch of salt. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the zucchini, corn, cumin and the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the stock, season and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until the potatoes and corn are tender. Set aside to cool a little. Transfer one third of the soup and all of the basil to a food processor and blend until smooth then tip back into the saucepan.
To serve: Reheat the soup and season if needed. Ladle into warm bowls and top with a spoonful of yoghurt, extra basil and a drizzle of olive oil. Serves 4–6
