OK, this is an easy one.
Take 2 large leeks, and slice. Wash well, but dont dry, leave the water in them.
Put some olive oil in a pot, and fry up about 1/4 cup of chopped bacon , add the leeks. Stir and then pop the lid on the pot and turn the heat down to medium.
Allow the leeks to just sweat it out for about 20 minutes, till they're soft. The water in them will steam them a bit. Then add about 4 roughly chopped up zucchini (courgettes) and enough vegetable or chicken broth to cover (I make the stock using Vegeta seasoning and boiling water). Simmer it till its all tender and then blend with a hand blender or in a normal blender in batches.
You can freeze some of it at this stage, when ready to eat, stir through some cream, natural yogurt, evaporated milk, whichever you prefer (I like cream, lol).
You can make this as thick or thin as you need depending upon how much stock you add.
I lost 100lb, in about oh, 2 years, but 70 within the first year.
