With the abundance of courgette I had lying around I decided to do a healthy & filling soup, that is gluten & dairy free, yet it still packs a punch.
So I absolutely love prawns, however I limit how often I have them due to my daughter being allergic to it. This soup is perfect for all the family to enjoy. With the abundance of courgette I had stocked up in the fridge I decided to do a healthy yet filling soup. Although courgette doesn’t seem the most exciting of vegetables, this was so tasty and extremely Moorish. If any of your children have a shellfish allergy like my daughter does. The soup can be made as instructed however you can add the prawns to the individual bowls of soup once it’s cooked, just make sure its quite hot so the prawns warm through enough. This is so it won’t be in the whole batch of soup, so it can be enjoyed shellfish, gluten & dairy free too, yet it still packs a punch.
“The word soup comes from French soupe (“soup”, “broth”), which comes through Vulgar Latin suppa (“bread soaked in broth”) from a Germanic source, from which also comes the word “sop“, a piece of bread used to soak up soup or a thick stew.” –Wiki
- 600ml of chicken stock (I used Knorr gluten free stock cube)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- A bunch of spring onions
- 3 medium courgettes
- Juice & zest of ½ a lime
- 175g of fresh prawns
- Pepper to season
- Add the stock cube to medium saucepan with 600ml of boiling water. Heat up the olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the washed and chopped courgette and spring onion with a drop of water for about 5 minutes.
- Add the boiling stock to the courgette and spring onion, stir a little then add the lime zest and juice. After 5 minutes remove half of the soup and blend it in a food processer until its smooth. Add this back into the large saucepan closely followed by the prawns and cook for a further 4 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and spoon this into a bowl, add some ground black pepper & enjoy.
