Fresh and healthy soup. Excellent texture. I would recommend serving with fresh corriander and a dash of cream... Well worth the effort

Just the trick for a rainy Saturday afternoon. My son ate his in about 2 minutes flat and asked for seconds so it must have been good! A great way to get vitamins into growing chiddlers.

This was a very, very nice soup. But it felt like something was missing to take it to the next level, maybe a bit of spice. Will have a play around with a few things next time.

Quick, easy to make and delicious! I used a dollop of natural yoghurt when serving, with fresh coriander and it really lifted it.

Best carrot and coriander recipe... only make it with carrots off the allotment though as shop brought ones just dont't have that flavour.

Delicious and very easy to make. I would use butter instead of oil next time and more carrots!

Making this again tonight.You couldn't get a better soup in a restaurant! I add a clove of minced garlic and double the dried coriander.As it's raining and freezing today i'm looking forward to my tea with a freshly baked crusty roll!!A bought one i might add though-not got round to trying to make bread yet! Anyone know if the bread makers are any good?

This soup was excellent but I made some changes - 1) I roasted the carrots with some garlic before adding to pan and 2) I doubled the quantity of carrots, had intended to double the stock too but no room in the pan but if I had it would've been far too watery. Bottom line is double the carrots or halve the stock.

A fantastic, healthy receipe and so easy to make - even I managed it :)

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 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

Very tasty soup... don't forget the coriander as its adds that little extra!! Healthy and tasty, great winter dish with crusty or garlic bread!!

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.
