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!

i've made this soup about 10 times since discivering the recipe and it is delicious. The kids love it too! I usually add a little milk or cream at the end to give it a smoother texture.

I've made this soup 3 times over the Christmas holidays. I've had lots of carrots and potatoes left over so this soup has been great. It's really easy and very filling and tasty with the coriander. Enjoy!
