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.

This was lovely though I did add double the amount of coriander. Quick, easy, cheap and tasty. What more could you want?

Made this last night for today's lunch - its wonderful! Didn't use the whole 1.2 litres of stock, but added a litre and added a touch more when soup was blended and I could check its consistency. Very very tasty - quick and easy to make too!

I love this soup! Really easy to make. I added three potatoes and only 1 litre of stock because I like my soups thick.
