Fabulite Creamy Baby Marrow Soup

If you have recently been diagnosed with diabetes or if you have had it for the majority of your life, a healthy balanced diet is always important. As they say: everything in moderation! Fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, whole grain cereals, and high quality protein are key components of a balanced diet for any individual. This delicious baby marrow soup owes its creaminess and protein punch to Fabulite and a sneaky egg yolk!


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium size onion, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped baby marrow
  • 3 cups hot water
  • 2 cups Fabulite plain yoghurt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 ½ tbsp flour
  • A handful of parsley, coarsely chopped
  • ½ tsp salt


  1. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat and sauté onion for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add chopped baby marrow, stir and cover the pot with a lid. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Next, add ½ cup of hot water, stir and cover the pot. Let it cook over medium low heat until baby marrow is tender.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolk and Fabuliteyoghurt in a large bowl well. Add flour and mix until combined.
  5. Very slowly pour the remaining hot water into the yoghurt mixture so that it does not curdle.
  6. Once the baby marrow has absorbed the water, pour the yoghurt mixture gradually into the pot while stirring.
  7. Toss in the chopped parsley and cook until it boils, stirring occasionally.
  8. Puree either with a food processor or a blender and let it boil in the pot for another 5 minutes.
