Zucchini and Basil Soup

40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
12 ingredients
6 servings
A quick-to-prepare, low fat, inexpensive and yummy soup, adapted from a recipe I found in the Australian magazine 'New Idea'. Not sure exactly when, but I think from 2005; it's one I cut out of the magazine some time ago, and have made several times since then. Like most soup recipes, it's extremely verasatile: you can add other vegetables that you have on hand that need to be used. I've added baby spinach leaves that needed to be used, and on one occasion, I added a packet of lentils. If you add other vegetables, you will probably need to add more stock. BTW, 750g = 1½ pounds.
