Step 1

Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan and gently fry the garlic with the leeks and thyme leaves (if using) for 3-4 minutes, or until the leeks are soft.

Step 2

Stir in the milk, cream and parsley, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for a further 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Serve immediately, or transfer to an oven dish, cover with kitchen foil and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.

Step 4

TIP - if you want to change this from a side to a main cook up some pasta and stir it into the creamed zucchini (using tongs or a slotted spoon straight from the pot into the frypan with the creamed zucchini) and stir in some finely grated parmesan and serve some more on top when you transfer to a plate)
