Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 medium white onion roughly diced
  • 1 medium courgette roughly diced
  • 1 clove garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • a generous handful of fresh mint
  • 2 cups baby spinach

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan over a low/medium heat. Add the onions and courgette and cook gently for a minute or so.
  • Add garlic and cumin and stir well. Cook for a few minutes longer so that the courgette is just tender and starting to brown a little.
  • Add the stock and bring to a gentle boil. Simmer for 5-6 minutes until the courgette has softened.
  • Remove from the heat and stir through the mint and spinach.
  • Transfer to a blender and blend until smooth. Serve warm or chilled.
