Lovely recipe, just needs a little tweak to your own preference. I use a few more carrots, one more potato and a little more coriander, making it a little less watery. It is delicious and all my family and friends enjoy it. Very simple to make and costs very little. Well worth 5 stars!

I followed Lynns advice. By doubling the amount of carrots, you get a better consistency. I also added a tablespoon of freshly grated ginger, turmeric, a teaspoon of nutmeg and some cream. You can also swap the normal potato out for a sweet potato. Really happy with this soup, best I've ever made.

I made this soup without it being too watery or bland (as mentioned by other reviews) by upping the number of carrots and adding a tablespoon of freshly grated ginger, turmeric, a teaspoon of nutmeg and some cream. My husband thought it was a Covent Garden Soup - which he loves. He was seriously impressed when I told him it was home made and there was enough left over for another few bowls!

This is great advice. I swapped out the normal potato for a sweet potato. This is the best soup I've ever made.

Delicious. We usually use a sweet potato instead of a regular potato, it's really good!

Just tried this recipe, like many people here I can confirm it comes out tasting bland and watery. We rescued it by adding another 450g of grated carrots, a teaspoon of cumin, 2 minced garlic cloves and about the same in ginger puree, a tablespoon of regular paprika and a good amount of salt and pepper. Simmered it until the grated carrots were soft and blended it up again and it tastes quite alot better. Not sure why the recipe is on this site with a 5 star rating. If you follow the recipe you will have carrot and coriander water. Try this recipe: 1 tbsp vegetable oil, 1 onion chopped, 1 tsp ground coriander, 1 potato chopped, 900g carrots chopped, 1.2l vegetable or chicken stock, handful coriander (about ½ a supermarket packet), 1 tsp cumin powder, 1 clove minced garlic (or 1 tsp of garlic puree), 1 tsp of ginger puree, 1 tablespoon of regualr paprika (also helps the soup not look too green), Salt and pepper to taste, blend it up, done. 1 tsp of garlic powder (optional), 1 tsp of onion powder (optional),

Super simple to make but really lacking in flavour even when I added Garlic, black pepper and a little cream. I would use less stock next time and maybe add some Cumin. However a great recipe to use up the veggies that you may already have in the cupboard!

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.
