Flavour packed zucchini and broccoli soup. There is a hint of mint and parsley. Some crunchy red cabbage sliced thinly adds some crunch and a squeeze of lemon on top before serving makes this so fresh and tasty! The trick to this is to blitz half the soup and then put it back in with the rest of the ingredients. Good for freezing if you make a big batch.
