Wash and slice the courgettes, place them in the Thermomix bowl and cook speed 1 Varoma for 12 minutes. Mix the vegetable with the soup, blend for 1 minute speed 10. Check the texture. If you like a smooth drinkable soup, keep it going a little more, speed 10. Check if the seasoning is to your taste and sprinkle with salt and pepper if needed. You may also add a bit of hot water if you think it’s too thick. The soup is now done and can easily be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. When you are about to serve, heat up the soup on low heat in a pot with the lid on and stir regularly.
- Step 2 At the last minute, add one or two slices of blue cheese in a bowl, serve the soup hot. It’s ready! Just add a few cheese crumbs on the top.
