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

Thank you so much, i have everything in the house apart from the fresh coriander. Do u think it will make a massive difference as I am skint and although corriander is not expensive I am slimy to the point of having 12 pence in my purse lol. X

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)

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.
