Equipment

  • Stick Blender or Liquidiser

Ingredients
  

For the Soup:

  • 300 g potatoes peeled and tickly sliced
  • 2 small brown onions cut into wedges
  • 1 stock cube
  • 500 g courgette cubed
  • 100 g cheddar grated
  • pinch of nutmeg

For the Cheddar Crisps:

  • 50 g cheddar grated
  • pinch of chilli powder

Instructions
 

To make the Soup:

  • Put your potatoes and onions in a large pan, crumble in a stock cube and pour just enough water to cover the vegetables. Bring to a boil and then cook for 8 minutes.
  • Add cubed courgettes, cover with a lid and cook for another 10 minutes until vegetables are soft, but courgettes still retain fresh green colour.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, add 50g of cheddar and a pinch of nutmeg. Then blend into a smooth soup using a liquidiser, food processor or stick blender.
  • Serve with the remaining cheddar and two cheddar crisps on top.

To Make Cheddar Crisps:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 220°C Fan. Line a large baking sheet with baking parchment.
  • Coarsely grate 50g of Cheddar and from 8 mounts of cheddar on your baking sheet, spreading each into a thin even layer. Make sure you leave at least 2 cm space in between your crisps.
  • Put them on the middle shelf of the oven for around 5-6 minutes, but keep an eye on them to make sure they don't colour too much or burn.
