Harvest Moon Soup

This soup is super easy and very satisfying.  The key is the cute presentation – here ladled into a hollowed out pumpkin and garnished with a dollop of sour cream and some dill.

2 pounds zucchini, cubed
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Place Courgette/ zucchini and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil – reduce heat to medium and simmer until zucchini is very tender.

Pour into a large bowl, and when cooled to workable temperature  blend to  puree soup until almost smooth. Return soup to saucepan and add remaining ingredients. Stir over medium heat until warm.

PS    I take no credit for either the recipe of the lovely photograph as This recipe came from here:


  1. Hello, I wet felted the wall hanging and a little bit of needle felting on the flowers. I’m making some felt beads at the weekend. What do you make with your felt?

    PS. i love the look of the soup!

  2. Hi Lou, I have made a few brooches with my felt, I will do a post with some photo's then you can have a look. They aren't great, but they are my first steps into this craft, although I did give a couple to a friend and she said that she had had some nice comments on the one she wore.
