PS added some grated carrot at the end after blending to add a bit of texture, lovely!

Just made this for lunch with loads of left over carrots, lost half of it to my 3yr old daughter who thought it was 'scrummy'! ran out of fresh corriander but still delicious without

Beautiful soup. I used chicken stock instead of veg and added a bit of cream at the end. A new favourite.

I added a very small amount of potatoe but also butternut squash a bit of garlic poowder and black pepper. It was absolutly delicious I am pregnant and I'm sure my baby loved it!!!
We will see if my son likes it later as it made plenty and I will defo be makin and freezing when my baby is weaning.
I wanted to make it because I had it at a wedding , never thought I'd like it as I only usually like jamaican or chunky soup but this soup has opened my mind to new things.

4* for healthiness and economy although I made the error of adding too much coriander on my maiden voyage - which throws the flavour and the colour off into medicinal territory!

Wow! what an quick easy recipe. I made double quantity ater reading comments from other members. I have to make a batch for a friend (then I will give heer a printout of the recipe! I made it exactly to the recipe,but, I used my stick blender rather than my Magimix. quicker to clean and it only took about 10-20 secs!Out of a score of 10 I give it 15!

This recipe is great. I added some fresh green chillies (with seeds) and it gave the soup a great kick!! Really nice and one of my favourites :)

What a great soup! I read the ratings and decided to make a double quantity. BRILLIANT. Hubby loved it. We had Ciabata bread with garlic butter with it and it was gorgeous. I just put the rest into the freezer. No need to make such a lot in the future as it was so easy and quick!

It is lovely soup and easy to make. But dont put 40g of coriander in. My soup ended up green. Need about half of that I suspect.

very nice taste, but i would add an extra potato next time :-)

delicous and very easy, low fat too. I made the quick carrot and walnut bread on this site to go with it and they made a lovely and economical meal. Depending on the stock you use, make sure you taste it before adding any salt as you shouldn't need any

Lovely soup. I don't add coriander because I don't like it but don't find the soup lacking flavour.

Easy tasted great, I did not use fresh coriander but still taste great.I will make it again and again.

This soup is fantastic. Made a mistake and added the fresh coriander instead of the ground at the beginning but still turned out fantastic. Brilliant recipe! Tastes just like the best shop bought.

First homemade soup I've tried - loved it! So easy. I halved the ingredients 'cos I didn't want to make such a big batch and still got 3 very decent sized bows of soup out of it! Thought I might've added too much coriander but it was very tasty. Will definitely make again!
