Zesty Courgette and Leek Soup

Light Courgette and Leek Soup on

A light and uplifting soup when you’re in a Spring-like mood but still need something warming. I made this soup in my new Optimum Froothie 9400 which is a power blender that i’ve been sent to test out. It’s so powerful that by friction alone it heats the ingredients into a warming soup. I whipped […]
