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.

Such a simple recipe, but absolutely delicious. I actually used a couple of celery sticks instead of onion as I needed to use them up; will definitely make this again.

Tripled this recipe and had with broccoli and Stilton soup for a group of 20 students. Disappeared very quickly!

The soup tasted great but it didn't look very appertising! It was quite thick and brown in colour. I followed the recipe without any additions. I suspect the colour was down to the onions being over browned. Will make again with more stock and make sure I dont over cook the conions!

I'm not usually a big fan of carrot soups but was looking for another soup to try so gave this one a go. It's a winner - really tasty, easy to make - will definitely have it again.

Delicious. Quick, simple, cheap and very tasty. It got loads of compliments. It think we will see this becoming the staple favourite soup in our household.

This is a great, quick to make low calorie soup.

I made it as per the recipe, although I had to guess the weight of carrots. Verdict: YUMMY quick and easy.

I really didn't like the taste, a bit too bland for my liking

Made this soup yesterday. Great, though would probably have been better if I had fresh coriander. Put in extra dried hoping it would make up but it still could have done with more. Will follow recipe next time. Added salt and pepper, also more stock as it was quite thick. Liked the idea of lemon juice which has been suggested a few times.

Very tasty soup! So easy and good way to use up any fresh corriander. I added a teaspoon of cumin, which gave it a kick. Also experiemented with adding double cream to one bowl, which tasted nice but it's lovely on its own.

This is a really lovely tasting soup :) More importantly its dead simple to make, even for a cooking simpleton like me, yesterday made a complete hash of the healthy coleslaw recipe due to me trying to use a smoothie maker as a blender (came out as puree :( )
