Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ medium white onion roughly diced
  • 1 medium courgette (zucchini) roughly diced
  • 1 clove garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 720 ml vegetable stock
  • 15 g fresh mint
  • 60 g 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.
