Carrot and coriander soup

Taking advantage of the fresh bread in the house I opted to make BBC Food’s carrot and coriander soup. I don’t have a blender so I just mashed the carrots once cooked, but would recommend blending if you can for a thicker soup. Its really quick and easy, not absolutely amazing but a good recipe to let fresh carrots sing.

Carrots fresh from the ground


1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 onion, sliced

450g/1lb carrots, sliced

1 tsp ground coriander

1.2 litresl/2 pints vegetable stock

large bunch fresh coriander, roughly chopped

salt and freshly ground black pepper


About a 1lb of carrots

Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onions and the carrots. Cook for 3-4 minutes until starting to soften.

Stir in the ground coriander and season well. Cook for 1 minute.
