Zucchini, Chilli and Mint Soup Recipe

Every time we make this soup it makes us happy! The bright green bowl of goodness is sure to out a smile on your face plus it really is delicious – packed full of healthy greens, a hint of spice with the chilli and the freshness of mint, it is delicious all year around.

It is also a perfect summer soup, make it when zucchinis are readily available in the warmer months and serve alongside some crust bread with butter and a crisp glass of white wine for a simple meal enjoyed outdoors.


4-5 medium/large zucchini (courgette), chopped in to 1/2 inch pieces
3-4 cups of good quality chicken or vegetable stock
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
Chilli flakes
2 tablespoons of olive oil


  1. Gently sauté the red onion and garlic in olive oil in a large saucepan until soft and translucent (not brown).
  2. Add the chopped zucchini and hot stock and simmer on medium heat until the zucchini is tender and cooked through.
  3. Add the mint and parsley, season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. Blend in batches in a heat proof blender until the soup is silky smooth.
  4. Once all of the soup is blended, return to heat for a few minutes prior to serving. Top with chilli flakes, extra mint and natural yoghurt (optional) and serve. Enjoy!

ELE tip- if your blender cannot handle hot liquids, wait until the soup has cooled before blending, then return to the heat to warm through prior to serving. Soup can also be served chilled in hot summer months, if preferred.
