Carrot and Coriander Soup

The weather is so cold and there is snow again on the mountains - all I want to do is snuggle on the sofa under a large duvet and eat! so today I decided that maybe some warm homemade soup would be comfort food (although there was also some left over Easter egg calling me too.......). I had a load of carrots left over from making carrot cake last week so I decided carrot and coriander soup would be perfect (luckily I froze a big bag of fresh coriander last year and still have a bit left)

1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion , chopped
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 potato , chopped
  • 450g carrots , peeled and chopped
  • 1.2l vegetable or chicken stock
  • handful coriander (about ½ a supermarket packet)

    1. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion, then fry for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the ground coriander and potato, then cook for 1 min. Add the carrots and stock, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat. Cover and cook for 20 mins until the carrots are tender.
    2. Tip into food processor with the coriander. then blitz until smooth (you may need to do this in two batches). Return to pan, taste, add salt if necessary, then reheat to serve.
