A really nice recipe, the addition of cheese and eggs give a good depth of flavour and make it a very filling soup.<br/><br/>Just one thing that caught me out making this for the first time, you are never asked to add the garlic.

This was a very different kind of courgette soup, I didn't think it was any different from any other until you add the cheese butter and egg and then it is totaly transformed into a a lovely smooth velvety soup I didn't use all the stock as I hate runny soup and I thought the 1500ml was too much I also used more garlic and lots of pepper. I added some soup to the butter mixture and whisked it up and then added it to the pot I was worried the egg would scramble but it didn't Thank you for posting. Made for Bargain Basement 2010
