Absolutely delish! Used slightly more carrot than recommended and used a large sweet potato in place of the normal potato. Still kept to 1.2L of stock making a lovely thick consistency. Used cumin as recommended - very nice. Would recommend adding a tub of 0% fat Greek yogurt for creaminess but still keeping the calories down. Made 4 decent sized servings. Will be making it again!

Used this recipe as the inspiration for a delicious carrot and coriander soup. Missed out the potato and used the remaining gravy of a rich oxtail stew, made up to 1.2 litres with vegetable stock. Crushed a teaspoon of coriander seeds because I didn't have any "ground". Lovely outcome!

This soup was so lovely. My children loved it. Must make double next time as it all went between the three of us.

Lovely! I added 140g of red lentils so it was very thick. I also used 2 tsp ground coriander and a sweet potato. Made five servings.

An absolutely amazing recipe for Carrot and Coriander soup! I doubled the measure of carrots and potato (I used sweet potatoes as suggested in the comments), and I used 1.5 measure of the stock in the recipe, as I like my soup slightly thicker. I used a tspn of ground coriander to start and then added more to taste as I didn't want to over power, and also added cumin which I saw suggested in the comments. After blitzing (and still only using half a bag of fresh coriander) I returned to the pan to add cream and season a little further. Delicious!
