Carrot soup? Anyonr?


Silver Member
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


Slimming for my children
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
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 will be making this later, but Peachy you say you have a coriander plant, where did you get one big enough? I get one every week with the tesco shop but woul dlove to have a plant in the garden as its costing me a fortune!!
That was a quick response!! Yes thats the same as I bought but I have to say I'm not too successful at keeping them alive!
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.
