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 :( )

Very nice and I also added more carrots and a potato as I found the consistency too thin for my taste

I've made this a few times with great success every time. It's simple and easy to follow and doesn't matter too much if you have less carrot or more of something else than specified. I've even substituted parsnip.

Having just made this for the first time i'm currently sat with the bowl on my lap enjoying! As everyone else has said, it was easy to make and tastes great. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, threw in a couple of celery sticks as i love the flavour it gives soups, and also added some dried chilli (i used scotch bonnets, but chilli flakes would do the same thing) to heat it up a little. Really tasty and a great quick option.

Yummy, made this three times now, love the flavour. Added another half potato to make it slightly thicker as its quite runny. But a wonderful tasting soup.

Lovely, fresh and very economical too! Add half a teaspoon of Tumeric for a more vibrant carrot colour, additional health benefits too! Another variation is to add a tablespoon of honey before whizzing in the mixer, this brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots without making it "sweet".

I love this recipe. So simple and goes down well with all the family. I double the recipe and then freeze it for myself for lunch during the week. It's very healthy.

Brilliant soup, have now made it several times. Some dried leaf coriander added early in the cooking instead of the fresh coriander at the end also works if you haven't got the latter to hand, but it is better with the fresh leaves.

Another 'Tick VG with Gold Star' for the BBC Good Food Team for this one.

Stuck to the recipe this time instead of just bunging as much in as I wanted and it turned out great. Really nice consistency.

Really easy, tastes brilliant - super cheap to make (especially on a student budget!) I'm a bit of a fan of mixing some double cream in after it's been pureed.
