Personally found this a little bland so added some cumin whilst cooking then seasoned with pepper and chilli flakes once served (think spiciness is a personal taste). Cumin gave it that added flavour it needed.

First time I ever made soup and it was wow!! So creamy, tasty and addictive. Impressive considering the ingredients used. Healthy too. Will never buy shop bought soup again.

This is lovely. Added a clove of garlic and softened the onion in butter instead of oil. Will definitely make again. Yummy :-)

I recommend Carol Vorderman's Carrot and Coriander soup. Far nicer and tastes fresher.

Very easy and tasty. Added a parsnip because I didn't have quite enough carrots. My 4 year old ate every bit and asked if we could have it every day, high praise from her but then I did tell her that it was woodland fairy carrot and moss soup.

Absolutely brilliant recipe:-) Have made it 3 times in a fortnight! I added a teaspoon of cumin seeds with the coriander...yummy!

Made this soup as recipe apart from adding two chopped garlic cloves with the onion and frying, absolutely delicious, served it with a spoonful of Greek yogurt as garnish and homemade garlic bread.

I had some carrots to use as we were going on holiday and, after checking the fantastic Good Food site, decided to make this soup.
It's absolutely fantastic and will definitely be one that I make again and again. Incidentally, I didn't faff about with the recipe, I just made it as stated!!

My first real attempt at soup making and it was delicious and really easy!

I've made this twice now, once using a potato as suggested and once using a sweet potato. I can highly recommend using a sweet potato. The flavour is delicious and the colour intensifies the orange of the carrots. Yum!

Given the simplicity of the ingredients, I was really taken aback by how rich in flavour and fulfilling this soup was. It is now a firm favourite and even my sister, prone to being fussy, devoured her portion in double-quick time when I first made it for her. Love it!
