    Hi guys I can't use the search function as I am using the app. I have a bag of untouched carrots which will go off soon. So really want to do a soup? Maybe even in my slow cooker?

    Do you like coriander? If so I am addicted to this...

    450g Carrot
    227g Potato
    Large Onion
    1tsp ground coriander
    1l veg stock
    1/2 pack fresh coriander leaves
    fry light
    salt and pepper to season

    Spray a pan with fry light, fry onion for 5 mins, stir in ground coriander and potato, cook for 1 min, add carrots and stock, bring to boil, cover and simmer for 20mins. Blitz till smooth with fresh coriander, return to pan, add salt and pepper to taste.

    I don't thin it down after this as I love thick soup, but you could add more stock, it's even nice with chicken stock

    yeah, 1 litre veg stock, I've never tried it with just dried coriander, I did ask my friend who's a chef about this the other day and he said dried corianders horrible, but give it a try, I use coriander a lot, like I said I'm addicted to this soup so I have bought a coriander plant...
    Let me know what it's like if you do add more dried coriander on blending

    Hi!

    Dry corriander on its own will be fine - thats what i usually use... i also find a splash of milk really makes it creamy

    Hope that helps!

    Bit late now, but if you have any dried ginger in your store cupboard I think that works really well as an alternative - I made a carrot and ginger soup as a starter for christmas dinner, just added a teaspoon of ground ginger (and mine was just carrots, no potatoes)

    a bit of cumin with ground coriander is yummy in carrot soup, with some chopped celery.

    I blend the soup in blender which seems to thinken it up. Also for an extra flavour I add tabasco or worcester sauce to either the whole thing or just a bowl of it.
