Leek & No-Potato 'Zoup'
Keto Fitness Club
We know 'zucchini' is American, but let's be honest... 'zoup' has a nice ring to it. And we want to annoy our friend Ross, who hates us using 'zucchini' instead of 'courgette'. You're welcome Ross :D

500g Courgette, skinned & diced (use the skin for courgetti recipes)
100g Leeks, sliced into 1-2cm chunks
40g/ml Unsalted Butter or Olive Oil
5g Vegetable Bouillon or Stock Cube in 250ml Boiling Water
1 Poached Egg per portion
100g Poached Haddock per portion
30g Goats Cheese per portion
30g Blue Stilton per portion
Melt the butter / oil in a medium saucepan and fry the leek & courgette over a low heat for around 3-5 minutes to allow the vegetables to soften.
Add the stock, bring to boil and then turn the heat to low and cover with a lid. Allow to simmer gently for 10 minutes.
The soup will naturally thicken as the courgette cooks. To create a smooth soup, use either a stick blender (this can be done with care whilst hot) or a nutri-bullet / jug blender (ensure you wait until the soup is cooled fully).
Season to your taste and serve with your choice of protein.
