DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add 100g (two-thirds) of the bacon and fry gently until it starts to brown. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft and translucent.
  • Add the courgettes and stock. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the courgettes are very tender.
  • Meanwhile, in a small frying pan, fry the remaining chopped bacon until crisp. Set aside to drain on kitchen paper.
  • Remove the soup from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Process until smooth using a hand-blender or food processor. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Reheat the soup as necessary, then divide amongst serving bowls. To garnish, place 2 tbsp yoghurt in each bowl, sprinkle with bacon.
