Carrot & Coriander Soup

This is my ultimate favourite soup and incredibly easy to make. I used the basic recipe from the BBC Food website, but when it comes to soup – you don’t need to be precise with measurements – just adjust to taste. One thing to note though, I don’t add salt to this as I find that the stock is salty enough.

Ingredients (all approx – serves 4 – 6 people):
5 large carrots (chopped small)

1 medium onion (chopped)

Approx 1.5 ltrs of stock of your choice

1 tsp of ground cumin

1-2 tbsp oil

Ground Pepper to season

Chopped fresh coriander to garnish

1. Heat the oil and add the onion and fry for around 1 minute

2. Add the carrots, mix and fry for around 5 minutes until evenly coated and starts to soften

3. Add the ground cumin, stir and cook for 2 minutes.

4. Add the ground pepper and mix

5. Pour the stock in and bring to boil

6. Leave on a slow heat for around 10 – 15 mins until the carrots are tender.

7. Whizz up with a hand blender and mix in the chopped coriander

8. ENJOY, with some bread!
