Just made this soup, wasn't sure about once cooked but when I blended it and added the fresh corriander it seemed to all come together. Absolutely gorgeous!!

Not a big fan. It was ok but not exceptional. I was only thrilled about the corriander (great!). If you want something tastier go for the broccoli mango soup (also on Goodfood).

Absolutely awful! I made this yesterday and can safely say this was the worst soup I've tasted in my life. This is the first recipe I've tried from this site and as a new cook the results were very disappointing and discouraging. Was going to cook again today but decided to leave the cooking to my mum from now on!

Didn't have any carrots, so used the lonely looking half a butternut squash sat in the fridge. Lovely,warming,healthy soup, kids ate it (8 & 4)no problem,with plenty left for our lunch tomorrow.

Really easy to make and a healthy, quick lunch option. I added some cumin for extra spice and if you're not having to be 'good', some grated cheese on top is a lovely addition.

Absolutely delicious. Added slightly less stock to make more canned soup consistency.

This is an excellent recipe. Make sure you add the fresh coriander because it really adds something to the dish. I made the recipe exactly as is but I used a blender instead of a food processor and I added salt and pepper at the end to taste.

Reading all the comments I thought this would be great however, I was quite disappointed for 2 reasons.
Firstly, I used left over Tesco "market value" carrots which have very little flavour to start with and secondly, the coriander overpowered the flavour there was.
Next time, I would use and buy good quality carrots (or use my own when they are ready!) and use less coriander.

Super tasty and easy to make, even fussy eaters will want more (mother in law and 3 year olds included!!)

I like chunky veg in my soup, so I decided to roast an extra chopped carrot in the oven whilst the soup was being prepared & cooked... After I blitzed it I added the roasted carrot chunks with the fresh coriander... yummy!

I made this recipe following my new year's resolution to lead a healthier lifestyle, and surprisingly "healthy" can still be very delicious! I loved it and will definetely make it again. Plus it's extremely easy!

This is really yummy! I love to make it when I need to use up the carrots. I have just made it again today for when my hubby gets in, going to have it as a starter with some homemade bread, yum! He can take the rest to work tomorrow. This is so tasty and easy to make!

I managed to over-order on carrots from, so searched this site for ideas, and thought that this sounded pretty easy and the comments were all good. And it absolutely lived up to all the fantastic ratings that it had. It's amazing that something so simple can taste so delicious. My friend has just had a baby so I'm going to make some more up for her so she has something delicious, nutritional and easy to warm up.
