Although this is a good recipe and the chef is a good chef I have to disagree with a part of this recipe. I would use fresh coriander instead of the dried coriander and my reason for this is that I do not like coriander in the first place and so this is one of two ways that I will eat fresh coriander, the other way is by making Lemon and Coriander Humous. In both these recipes, I find fresh coriander to be acceptable to eat, other than that I will not eat fresh coriander as I do not like the taste of it.

Loved this soup. Simple to make and lovely end result. I used 1L of stock to start with but added a little more to thin it out a bit to the consistency I wanted.

Absolutely delicious recipe (although I only used 500ml of stock)! Very tasty, thick and so easy! Definitely will do it regularly

Made this soup many times, never fails. As other users have commented, I only used 1L of stock as I like my soup a little thicker.

Made this soup 3/4 times and never have used anywhere near the 1/2l of stock.Just made it to the consistency with 300mg of stock.I find it hard to envisage what it would be like with the rec 1/2l.However it is a nice sound easy to make.

Googled soup recipes and this one jumped out, read through the reviews and like most altered the recipe to taste. Used half a sweet potato and half a regular spud as well as 2 cloves of fresh garlic. I got dried coriander as well as fresh as I misread the ground coriander bit, can say it made no difference. I went with the 1200ml of stock although I may cut it down to a litre next time. My hand held blender did the job of a food processor and great tip from the video to cover with a tea towel to prevent splash back. Quick, cheap and very easy to make and alter. Love it.

I'm not normally a soup lover but made this today and it was delicious! Followed the recipe except I only had 400g of carrots and not the 450g as stated. Also I only used ground coriander as had no fresh, so added about 1/2 a tsp more. It was perfect and I will be making again.

Quite bland andi struggled to eat it without adding loads of salt. There's and alternative Prue leith recipe for this that's better, that is very flavoursome.

This soup is beautiful. Tasty, silky and perfect for a cold day. I made some changes. I added 1 tsp ground cumin, 1tsp turmeric and increased the ground coriander to 2 tsps. I used a large potato and reduced the stock to 1 litre. It was perfect. Even my husband who hates carrots and turned his nose up at the thought of eating it, loved it and had two bowls.

I’ve just made this recipe and have been reading the comments whilst making it. I followed the recipe almost to the letter but used 650g of carrots and slightly less liquid ( Knorr chicken stock cube) I did not cover the pan at all and this helped the liquid to reduce more than if I had used a lid. After reading other comments I added a tsp of cumin a tsp of turmeric and the same of garlic salt. I like pepper so used quite a lot. It looks and tastes as good as any shop bought carrot and coriander soups so 5 stars. It’s going in the freezer today but I think I will add some double cream before serving.

Only altered a couple of ingredients, because of dietary problems, coconut oil instead of veg oil, a sweet potato (better for you) and a small amount of onion(unfortunately)! a good chicken stock cube, and a handful of parsley stalks, works wonders! use them in all my soups.... always guess the amount of liquid, can always add more! if needed... Absolutely no need for anything else, especially cream, how healthy is that? all in all a healthy nourishing velvety soup....

please readers, if you find your soup too watery , simply add another chopped potato and boil hard to reduce and thicken, this way the flavour won`t be compromised. To the reader who added two tins of tomatoes! This was surely adding more liquid?

Always make sure what you put in your liquidiser or food processor has cooled down or you will not do the bearings or seals any good it will shorten the life of both.

Lovely simple recipe, next time I would add an extra small potato as a little thin for my liking, but lovely nonetheless.

I added 1/4 spoon of chilli powder and small amount of chilli flakes as my family like quite hot food, tasted delicious.
