Very tasty and so simple to make. Next time I will use less stock as I prefer a thicker soup.

Dead simple and really delicious. Made it to eat with a friend for lunch, have loads leftover so that's lunch sorted at work! Fresh coriander really adds something.

Slightly changed the Soup because I did not have any Corriander (big change really) Used dried Parsley instead. Result lovely. Had to make a double batch the next day so all family could have extra. Big hit with all = 2 adults, 1-18yr old, 1-16 yr old, 1-13 yr old and 1-9 yr old.

Wow. I've just made this and it's fantastic. I did use less stock that the recipe suggested (about 900ml) as I prefer soups on the thick side.

Just as delicious with or without fresh coriander. Afraid we may turn orange soon as make it so often - delicious!

this recipe was excellent! I used a sweet potato instead of a normal potato, it was georgous! i had to add 0.5L more water than stated in the ingredients as it was too thick to start but this could have been because of the large sweet potato i used! However this wasn't a bad thing as it meant that i ended up with a load more soup!
Will be making some more very, very soon!

This was a really nice recipie to follow. Very easy and took hardly any effort to make. I added a few more potatoes to bulk it up and also a few more carrots too. Using a Hand Blender to process the ingredients was easy and handy and also left little washing up afterwards.
The soup itself was really yummy, me & my boyfriend both had seconds!! It was perfect with a blob of creme fraiche and some crusty bread. This is one to make again!!

I don't agree that this soup can be frozen. It didn't taste very nice afterwards.
