Support your immune system with this courgette soup

Courgette and Kefir naturally contain nutrients that support immune health

Perfect as a light meal or starter, Chilled Courgette Soup with Kefir and Golden Kimchi is a delicious combination of fermented foods – kimchi and Kefir – for a gut-friendly meal that supports your immune system, too!

That’s right, both Biotiful Kefir and courgette naturally contain vitamins that contribute to the normal function of the immune system: our Kefir contains Vitamin B12 while the courgette contains Vitamin C. Learn more about Kefir and Immune Health.

And we mentioned it was gut-friendly, too. That’s because the Kefir and kimchi are both fermented foods made with live cultures, and it’s believed these can give your body a dose of live microorganisms crucial to healthy digestion. Learn more about the link between Kefir and Gut Health.

And, of course, this recipe is delicious! Your taste buds will thank us now, and your body will thank us later.

This recipe was created in collaboration with Eaten Alive, who aim to drive fermented foods past the realm of hardcore foodies and onto the plates of everyone who wants food that both tastes and feels good.  


  • 1 small onion finely sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed
  • 3 courgettes 1 cm dice
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 500 ml vegetable stock
  • 200 ml Original Biotiful Kefir
  • 150g Eaten Alive Golden Kimchi roughly chopped

Chilled Courgette Soup with Kefir

  1. Sweat the onion and garlic over a medium heat until softened but not brown.
  2. Add the courgettes, season and sauté for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Next add the frozen peas and the stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 mins then blend until smooth.
  4. You want to chill the soup as quickly as possible to conserve the green colour, using a wide flat bowl, or a bowl set in iced water. Stirring regularly will help.
  5. Once fully chilled, whisk in the Kefir and check the seasoning.
  6. To serve, pour into bowls and top with a heaped spoon of the kimchi, a twist of black pepper and some olive oil.
