    Hi Jessica,

    Just wondering how much boiling water to add – is it just as per the stock cube amount?

    Can’t wait to make this one 🙂

    • Hey Sophie! As per the stock cube and your preference in terms of thickness 🙂

    Hi, Jessica. loving your site. You know you can make zuchinni soup without the stock cubes and it is delicious (less additives). Just fry 2 large onions, add about 10 zuchinni cut in to chunks with enough water just to cover, bring to a boil, add 1 piece of garlic crushed, salt and pepper to taste. Let it cook for about half an hour- 45 minutes, until zuchinni are really soft and flavours have combined. puree. Delicious. freezes beautifully. It’s nice to serve with some grated mozzarella cheese sprinkled in.
