First time making this soup... Definitely suggests to use too much coriander, however i noticed before adding it all that it was turning far to green so only added about half the recommended amount! perhaps a wee bit too watery, next time I would reduce the stock to only 1L... All in all though its a lovely soup and extremely easy to make so would recommend!!

Based on all comments i used 2 medium potatoes and 900ml vegi stock which gives the right consistency when blended. I also chopped the onion with the stalks of the coriander, 2 cloves of garlic and a mild red chili without seeds and fried this lightly as a paste before adding the carrots, potatoes and stock. Used a small hand-full of the coriander leaves and a spoon of creme fraiche to finish. It was delish.

WAYYYY too much stock in this! We blended it up and it was too watery. So we added two tins of tomatoes and a bit of salt and pepper. Even then it was still watery... But edible.
We also used garlic with the onion, and added creme fraiche, as well as a bit of worcester sauce.

Just made this for my lunch and I absolutely loved it. Definitely one of the best soups I have ever eaten!
Will definitely be making more soon.
I only added a tsp of coriander herbs and also used a veg stock. I also was unsure of what amount of water to use so just used a mug full and it came out just the right texture. Hope I can repeat next time !

This was OK but if making it again would use much less stock. I used far more carrot than the recipe suggested but still ended up with a much too watery soup. Also significantly reduced the suggested amount of coriander, following advice from on here!

This recipe works perfectly just the way it is. I used half of one of the smaller bunches of coriander available in the supermarket. I can only imagine others have used a large bunch without realising. I found it a little more tricky to blend it with a hand blender, as I don't have a food processor. But I will be making this regularly.

The soup was simple to make, using a hand held blender. However, the addition of fresh coriander was so overpowering and stank out the whole house. Disappointing result even after adding extra black pepper but will try again soon without fresh coriander and using freshly ground coriander seeds instead of powder. Have made carrot and coriander soup successfully in the past but, annoyingly, have misplaced recipes. Soup I made last night is still edible but "Coriander Soup" would be a better name for it!

Just made this really quick and easy soup. I used a veggie oxo for the stock and added 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of ground chilli powder.
A great,quick, low-cal soup that I will make again.

First time making anything from scratch! I figured I would start with something easy and it was absolutely delightful! Added a tsp of Paprika to give it a little bit of a kick. Will be making this again.

Made this soup yesterday and was disappointed. It was extremely and I mean extremely bland. I ended up putting LOADS of salt and pepper and finally lemon juice in it to get some flavour into it. I won't making it again.

I have made this soup previously to a different recipe and it was delicous. Unfortunately I misplaced the recipe, hence me making this version.

This is delicious! I used about 650g of carrots as they needed using and used 1.5l of stock, which resulted in a nice texture. I way over did the corriander (which also needed using up) but that suited me fine as I love the stuff. Yum yum yum.

I used a bit less stock (1 litre) and 2 tsps of ground coriander and it came out lovely. So easy! Will definitely use again.

Lovely simple recipe, next time I would add an extra small potato as a little thin for my liking, but lovely nonetheless.

I added 1/4 spoon of chilli powder and small amount of chilli flakes as my family like quite hot food, tasted delicious.
