Didn't have any ground coriander (added a small amount of ground cumin, caraway seeds and pinch of chilli flakes instead).
Used less stock than as per the ingredients listed and added celery instead of potatoes.
Simple and delicious - agree that the fresh coriander adds something really lovely to it although I'm sure it'd still be good without it. Hope it will be as tasty after freezing!

Brilliant soup. Really quick, easy and cheap to make! When I have it in the fridge, I stir a tbl spoon of cream into the soup when serving.

the most i've cooked is scrambled eggs on toast.this looked easy to make so i thought i'd give it a go.it is so easy to make and tastes great.i also like to throw in some chinese 5 spice and garlic which gives it a totally different taste.i shall now move onto tougher things to make with confidence

This was nice but it didn't set my world on fire! It was really simple to make and perfectly edible but I don't think I'll make it again. Purely my taste rather than a bad recipe.

Made this for lunch as a change from my usual low calorie soup and it was lovely. So easy to prepare too!

Great, easy to make soup that the whole family can enjoy! One tip: you do not have to peel the carrots! I washed the smaller carrots and only peeled the large ones! Also I used a medium sized potato as it did not say what size and this worked fine! really yummy soup!

Have made this souper soup once this week and it is souperb. Am about to make some more today and am adding half a teaspoon of chilli flakes to see what it does for the recipe as i like a little more spicy flavour, but, to each his own.
