This is another one for the ‘me not Bert’ section.
Serves 2 (but if Tony doesn’t get into the kitchen in the next five minutes, I’m going back in to finish it off)
2 courgettes, roughly chopped
500ml chicken stock
Pinch of salt
1 avocado, halved and flesh scooped out
1/2 lemon, juice of (use the other half for a G&T when the sun’s past the yard arm) (what that expression means, beyond ‘reach for the alcohol as soon as is decently possible’, I have no idea)
Leaves from a couple of stalks of mint
Good splash of double cream
This is so easy. Stick the chopped courgette in a pan with the stock and salt, and simmer till tender. Take it off the heat, add the avocado, mint, lemon juice and cream and blend.
