This is a spicy, curried marrow soup which is perfect to enjoy as a winter warmer or as a starter during the summer months.

Marrow Soup with spice

Marrow soup is one of the go to things that I put together when I have a glutton of marrows to get through. This soup is quick and easy to do. It’s good for lunches and it freezes – meaning you can tuck into at a later date, when life is busy and you don’t know what to cook.

Generally speaking, I feel soup is an under rated food stuff that we should all know how to make. They’re dead easy to do and you can adjust them to your own tastes – making them a truly bespoke dinner, lunch or starter.

  1. Peel and wash the carrots and marrows making sure you top and tail the marrows.

Marrow Soup with spice

A top tip with this marrow soup is to get door stops of crusty white bread, smothered in butter to dip in. The simple foods are always the best and this soup leaves you feeling gloriously warm afterward.

A courgette or marrow is also good to throw into an ordinary vegetable soup as well.

    Looks great. What do I do about the seeds in the marrow? Thanks

    1. Thank you very much – I keep the seeds, and dry them out to use again. It doesn’t always work, but it’s worth a shot. 🙂

    Oh, I cut the seeds out & put in compost bin along with the peel. It’s cooking now….glad they mention crime fraiche, I only had hot curry powder.
    Ok but a bit watery, will use less water next time.
