Yesterday the latest incarnation of Cheeky Bottom Soup made its appearance at Frugal Follies. This time a scrabble around the fridge yielded yellow courgettes, green courgettes, tomatoes, runner beans and onions. All bar the onions were free food from my own garden or the prolific gardens of friends,
I bunged the whole lot in a roasting tray with a glug of olive oil and a wallop of garlic and a plonk of pesto in a moderate oven for an hour, then blitzed them. Some was combined with a little vegetable stock for lunch but the rest will be frozen without stock (to save freezer space) and pulled out in the winter when I need a reminder of summer sunshine.
