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!

Very delicious. The flavour of the coriander and carrot go well together and there is no need for cream as found in some recipes.

This soup is very nice, the problem i had was that i put too much coriander into and it turned a greeny colour! I only used three carrots, so my tip for someone who is going to make this soup is to use more than 3 carrots. Great recipe though!!!!

Made this twice in one week, so easy, especially with a hand blender. Used just 1 litre of stock as i like the soup to be a bit thicker. Really tasty with cheesy soda bread!

This soup is simple to make, and delicious to eat - all my family enjoy it, my children didn't enjoy soup until they tried this. I use fresh coriander instead of dried - and the smell when cooking is fab! Definately one to teach your kids who are off to Uni!

I doubled this recipe so there would be enough to freeze. After reading all the good reports I was sure I would want it again! However, my soup ended up very watery. It just seemed like 2.4 litres of stock was far too much for 900g of carrots, and a couple of potatoes and onions. Next time, I would reduce the amount of water used. Either that, or not cover the pan for 20 minutes to let some water evaporate.

this was really tasty. i used slightly more carrots than the recipe asked for & my soup came out really thick. i added a little bit of water to loosen it. delicious!!
