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 yummy, but no where ner as nice as the broccoli and Stilton soup. Will definately be making again though. :-)

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
