Have to tell someone about this - invented by my mum on Sunday and being cooked by moi right now for tea.


Courgettes - 2
Baxters (was Campbells) condensed soup Chicken

Slice up courgettes, pour on soup (don't add water), place in oven (gas mark 5) for 30 - 40 mins


It's really tasty and so easy it is stupid.

I suppose you could put in any veg you fancy (cauliflower, broccoli, leeks etc) and any soup flavour. We did chicken because it's what is in the cupboard and courgettes because that is what we had grown.

Ooh Baxter's condensed soups make fab sauces. We make chicken supreme with the chicken & white wine one, make it up with half the amount of water it says (and use milk not water), just add onion, and then mushrooms & peas (both optional).

That was the sound of my weetablix hitting the wall after being reaquainted with the world!

Courgettes and soup! Are you mad? How did you come up with this idea? Did you look in the cupboard and see courgettes and then the soup and 'pop' an idea - I know courgettes and soup!

We have lots of courgettes after a bumper crop but courgettes and soup! shock

I'll blame my mother - she came up with it I copied it. It was condensed soup so more creamy than normal soup.

GO on, give it a whirl (otherwise, courgettes fried with black pepper and a bit of lemon juice are very nice if that's more your cup of team... no go scrape those weetabix off the wall, if you leave them they'll go rock solid and you'll need to replaster the wall).
