This is really nice:

Marrow and Roasted Garlic Soup

All measurements approx to suit taste.

1 large bulb of garlic, seperated into cloves, root end cut off but not skinned. Roasted in oven in a couple of tablespoons of oil for about 20 minutes.

1 large onion, chopped and sweated in a large saucepan in a tablespoon of oil (and optional butter)

2 Ib peeled and deseeded marrow, chopped roughly.

1 1/2 pints stock (I used veggie)

Add the marrow to the cooking onions and squeeze the roasted pulp out of the garlic. I got fed up doing this and ended up just removing the peel and bunging the cloves in whole. Cook for a couple of minutes, then add the liquid. Bring to the boil and cook for about 20-30 minutes, depending how big your lumps of marrow. Remove from heat, liquidize and/or pass thru a seive (optional). Serve with a sprinkle of parsley and a swirl of cream! YUMMMMMMY

Does it have to be veggie? Cos stuffed with a bolognaise-type sauce is delicious.

So if it has to be veggie then a sort of lentil bolognaise, or chile or something? With grated chedder on top? Mmm am hungry.

can see i'm going to end up needing more marrows!

soup sounds great and i hadn't though of stuffing beyond rice with bits of veg in....could easily knock up a spicy lentil and cheese mix

thanks for inspiration!

Today I stuffed a marrow with peppers, onions, courgettes, tomatoes and goats cheese. I cooked the veg first, added a little stock and red wine, filled the marrow, added the goats cheese then cooked it for an hour.

It was delicious.

I have got to understand August is marrow season, not because I had seen a marrow in my whole life (I hadn't) but because as soon as they are delivering them in those boxes, everybody is asking what the hell to do with them. grin sorry. blush
