Cheesy courgette with potato soup
This easy soup uses up courgettes and is a savoury treat for the whole family.

500g potatoes, unpeeled and roughly chopped

2 vegetable stock cubes

1kg courgettes, roughly chopped

Bunch spring onion, sliced - save 1 for serving

100g extra-mature cheddar grated, plus a little extra to serve

Good grating fresh nutmeg, plus extra to serve (powdered is fine)

Basil for garnish (optional to serve)

In a large pan put the potatoes in with just enough water to cover them and crumble in the stock cubes.

Bring to the boil, then cover and cook for 5 minutes.

Add the courgettes, put the lid back on and cook for 5 minutes more.

Add in the spring onions, cover and cook for a final 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat, then stir in the cheese and season with the nutmeg, salt and pepper.

Whizz to a thick soup, adding more hot water if necessary.

Serve scattered with a few basil leave if using.
