Glossy green courgettes are cheap, plentiful and versatile – and they keep well, too. In this fuss-free soup, we’ve sautéed them with ginger and curry powder for a warming twist.

Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Courgette

2 medium, trimmed and roughly chopped

Spring Onions

4 medium, trimmed and finely sliced

Garlic

3 clove(s), finely sliced

Root Ginger

5 teaspoons, finely sliced

Curry Powder

½ tablespoons

Vegetable stock cube(s)

2 cube(s), To make 800ml

Spinach

1 portion(s)

Coriander, fresh

20 g, leaves picked and finely chopped

Lemon(s)

1 zest(s) of 1

Lemon Juice, Fresh

2 tablespoons

Cumin seeds

1 teaspoons, level

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

45 g

Instructions

  1. Mist a large pan with cooking spray and fry the courgettes, spring onions and garlic over a medium heat for 5 minutes, until just starting to soften. Add the ginger and curry powder and cook for 2 minutes, then pour in the stock. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  2. Add the spinach and half the coriander to the pan, and cook for 2 minutes until the spinach is wilted. Stir in the lemon zest and juice, then season to taste and remove from the heat. Using a stick blender, blitz the soup until smooth.
  3. Meanwhile, toast the cumin seeds in a dry frying pan over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant, then crush slightly using a pestle and mortar.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls, swirl in the yogurt and serve garnished with the toasted cumin seeds and remaining coriander.
