Zucchini and Basil Soup

Brrrrrrr it's so cold outside, which is pretty unusual for this time of the year. Rather than complain about the Antarctic winds and torrential rain, I've decided to embrace this unseasonal wintery blast by jumping into my favourite pyjamas, cooking a healthy but hearty Zucchini soup (a recipe I pinched from my Aunty Karen) then warming myself up by the fire. Don't you just wish it was winter so you could do this every night?

What you need

2 zucchinis diced

2 bunches of basil (2-3 cups)
1 red onion diced
2 cups carnation milk (or cream)
600ml vegetable stock

Dice the onion and zucchini into fairly small chunks.

Throw onions, zucchini and basil into a large saucepan with vegetable stock. Bring the soup to the boil, then turn heat to low and simmer for 30-40 minutes with lid on. 

Once all the veggies are soft pour soup and carnation milk into a food processor to blend, return to pot and simmer for a further 10-15 minutes.

Serve with some crusty bread covered in HEAPS of butter :)

What are some of your favourite winter-warming recipes?
