Zucchini (Courgette) and Lemon Soup

This zucchini lemon soup is light and refreshing, yet creamy.  It’s a soup perfect for summer.  Or on those days when you want to be reminded of a summers day

I normally use onions as a base to my soup but have cut them out for this to keep the carbs nice an low.  Making soup is a great way to use up all of those left over summer zucchini’s (courgettes).   The lemon goes so well with this and the texture of the soup is just right (well for my tastes).   Simple to make and delicious to eat – huzzah!

    Yum, this soup is so easy and delicious. First slurp and I thought I’d overdone the lemon but second slurp assured me I hadn’t. Husband loved too, so making again today having just taken my Chicken, Zucchini & Feta Balls out of oven!

    First rainy, chilly day of the season and perfect for soup. It’s simmering now and I have to wait 10 more minutes – smells divine and I love lemon so I know I will love this too. Thanks for all your good recipes.

    This looks great! I’m really into courgette soups at the moment – I made a similar one with basil and parmesan: http://chillimarmalade.com/2012/09/19/courgette-basil-and-parmesan-soup-with-crispy-smoked-bacon/

    I will give your recipe a try over the weekend as I still have plenty of courgettes in the garden. Thanks!
