Get Ready For Winter Veg Food – Leek and Courgette Soup

Juicy zucchini and earthy leeks are paired together in this delicious soup recipe that makes for a nutritious lunch or light appetiser to enjoy during the fall and winter months. Both of these vegetables can be grown in a garden or a greenhouse. Personally, I prefer to grow my leeks outside in the garden because they prefer to be exposed to the wind.

Note: This recipe yields 4 servings.

Time: 20 min.


  • 2 courgettes
  • 2 leeks
  • 1 onion
  • 2 spring onion stalks.
  • 2 garlic cloves.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme.
  • 1 teaspoon of curry powder (or turmeric).
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.

That’s all the ingredients that you will need to make this delicious soup.

Preparation Method:

Before cooking the vegetables, first cut the onion, garlic, leeks, and zucchini into fine pieces. Melt the coconut oil over low heat and then fry the onion until it is translucent. Next, add the leek and fry for a few more minutes, after which you add the courgettes and stir-fry for about 5 minutes.

The secret to this dish is that you can add all the ingredients to the wok at the same time. Add the herbs, salt, and pepper and stir well so that the aroma of the herbs comes into its own and gives the dish even more flavour. Add a litre of water and bring to the boil, after which you also add the stock cube and stir until it has dissolved.

Stir together all the ingredients and poke the zucchini every now and then to see if it is soft. All of the ingredients should be pureed together with an immersion blender and served with a bun or cracker.


  • Cut the onion, spring onion stalks, garlic cloves, leeks, and zucchini into small pieces.
  • Fry the onion, spring onion stalks, and garlic cloves in the coconut oil for about 5 minutes, until the onion becomes translucent.
  • Add the leeks and sauté them for about 3 minutes, then add the courgettes. Now stir-fry both for about 5 minutes on low heat. Add a pinch of thyme, curry powder, and/or turmeric, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring it to a boil, using about 1 litre of water.
  • Add in the stock cube, and let it cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Blend the mixture with the stick blender until it is smooth and pureed.

You now have a delicious recipe that is simple but tasty. Enjoy your meal!
