Tomato and Courgette Soup

This is a lovely combination. The Courgette takes the acidity from the tomato and makes it a very well rounded dish.

8Great soup didn't put the wine in!
6If you want to take the bland out of it, cook up a bacon bone to make a stock and add this to the soup.
10I love cooking with tomato and courgette gluts and this is THE BEST soup recipe I've used with these ingredients. Thank you!
10Very clear instructions. Accurate quantities. How I hate recipes that specify "cups"! And nice soup. I used fresh basil instead of oregano.
10Yum. Made this as I have a glut of yellow courgettes. It is so delicious, quick and easy to make. Have saved this in my favourites and already forwarded the link to a friend! Served this with home made bread.
10I love the whole site. You have really good basic recipes to help people. Photos make a big difference
10Substituted the worcestershire sauce for spicy tomato ketchup, this worked really well.
6It sounds great but unfortunately is a bit bland.
8Lovely soup, and we didn't bother with the sugar or the wine as we had neither.
9So clever that you do measures in metric and US 'cups' - I am forever finding great recipes online only to find they are measured in cups and I'm never quite sure I've got the right ones as apparently they differ between US, Australia etc.
10Photos make it very easy to follow recipe but will cut the salt
10Thanks - I know from the ingredients that it will be good. (I won't add salt if using tinned tomatoes as they contain enough salt for me)recipe)
9Great clear recipe, tastes good. A little too much salt for my liking, I doubled the recipe and kept the salt the same and it is still a little salty.
10I used a mix of fresh and chopped very easy to make with clear instructions would recommend.
10excellent warming soup, but i used fresh tomatoes
10not good
10very clear easy to follow instructions, thanks.
8I regularly have to make a soup of the day at work & used this recipe. It was great & had a wonderful flavour.
6good tho tomato to courgette ratio is off
10I have already made this soup twice and it's delicious! Great job :-)
5It doesn't specify canned chopped tomatoes in the list of ingredients, it's only when you scroll down that this is stated
