Light courgette soup

It's starting to get cold and there is nothing better than a hot bowl of soup for warming up when you get home. Today I've done a light courgette soup, so if you are trying to lose some weight you may be interested in this tasty and easy recipe.

Ingredients (2-3 portions)
2 courgettes
1/2 potato
1/2 onion
1 leek (the white part)
50gr Celery approx
2 teaspoon philadelphia extra light

1. Wash the courgettes, slice off top and bottom tips and cut the courgettes into slices. If you want you can peel the courgette, it's said that it might be a bit bitter, but I don't really notice that.
2. Peel and slice the potatoe, wash and slice the celery and the leek.
3. Heat the wather and add all the vegetables. Let it boil for 25 minutes.
4. Put all the vegetables with just some of the boiling whater in the blender. You can add more whater (or skimmed milk) if you want it more liquid.
5. Finally you add the cheese and mix a bit more.

For a not so light soup just put the sliced leek and onion into a bit of heated olive oil and cook for five minutes,then follow as in the light version. You can also use a  whole potatoe and mozzarella cheese instead of extra light cheese.
