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!
