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!!

Needs more carrot's and less liquid, but otherwise a good recipe

Great recipe and really quick and easy. You can always add more potato to thicken more and chicken stock adds more flavour.

I can't believe how easy this is. Its the first time I've made soup. Its quicker than driving to the supermarket to buy ready made and it tastes so much better.
