Turns out fantastic and it's easy to make, most of the ingredients are in your cupboard so there is really no need to buy anything you wouldn't buy on ordinary trip to the supermarket. Tastes lovely too!

Quartered the ingredients as I was eating alone and made this for lunch earlier, enjoyed it so much I had to make it again this evening for the entire family! It's the first time my baby girl has eaten something with vegetables (rather than fruit) and actually wanted more.

This is a fail-safe and easy recipe, made it loads of times.

I made this soup following the recipe to the t. The consistency was good, but I think it lacked flavour. I was so disappointed and threw it away. Will not be making again.

Skipped the onion though. Let me add that I'm possibly the least domestic person you are likely to come across and this was a whizz even for me.

Just made this and added two cups of peas, a little extra coriander and roasted cumin seeds. Served with toasted salsa bread. Yum! Would definitely make this again for my veg-allergic husband.

This is the first soup I have ever made and it tasted really lovely.
Very simple to do and even nicer with my homegrown carrots and coriander.

This soup tastes quite good but I found that it was a bit too savoury for my liking and I added some sugar. Next time I make this soup I'm going to add some cream which will hopefully give it some extra sweetness and richness. I also feel it needs more carrots in the mixture because it comes out quite brown and tasting more like a vegetable soup than a carrot soup. Still, if you're looking for a healthy, good-tasting soup, this recipe is very good as a base, and is easy to build on.

I have made this soup 3 times now and wasn't sure about the coriander the first time I made it but I loved it and so did Hubby and 7yr old fussy daughter. It's now a family favourite, the coriander makes the soup,had it with fresh crust bread/rolls. It's cheap and sooo easy to make, love it!
