    This recipe is a bit vague isn’t it? Amounts?

  2. admin says:

    It’s a veg growers recipe meaning you can just use what amounts you have.

    The milk/cream/sugar/herbs and seasoning can be added according to taste.

    Try it!

    Sounds like a good way of using some of the courgettes that are growing so fast. I assume it can be frozen?

  4. Mike Jones says:

    Yes, the soup can be frozen. I added extra chillies for a more warming soup.
