Courgette, Mint and Wild Garlic Soup

This is a very garlicky soup! With both a garlic clove, and mine were french and therefore stronger, and the wild garlic this nearly blew my head off! I think next time I'll leave the garlic clove out.

Courgette, Mint and Wild Garlic Soup
(Serves 4)

2 tbsp oil
1 small onion sliced
6 courgettes sliced
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 bunch wild garlic
1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped

Put two tbsp of oil into a large pan. Add the onion and saute for a couple of mins, until translucent but not brown. Add the courgette and the garlic. Season and saute for another min or two, cover with water and bring to a simmer to soften.

Simmer for about 10 mins, when the vegetables are cooked through, remove the pan from the heat and add the chopped wild garlic and mint. If it's too thick, add a little water to thin it out.

Blend with a hand blender, season with salt and pepper, and serve.
