Marrow & Spinach Soup

This the perfect tasty way to deal with those over sized courgettes hiding under leaves! Ideal with some seasonal spinach too…

1 marrow
2 handfuls of raw spinach
2 medium onions
1 clove garlic
1 medium potato
about a litre of vegetable stock
double cream (not essential)

This simple recipe is an ideal family warmer in the Autumn & uses your excesses of the veg patch too. It is also ideal for freezing (before you add the cream). Simply chop the onions and gently fry in a little olive oil with the crushed garlic. Once the onion is translucent, add the chopped marrow and stir for about 3-4 minutes. Add the hot stock and the chopped potato and bring to the boil. Allow the whole soup to simmer for about 15 minutes, adding the chopped spinach for the last 5 minutes. Once the potato is cooked through, whizz the soup with a hand blender and warm through, adding seasoning at the end to suit your taste and a dash of cream if you want.
