Very versatile recipe. Add a bit of fresh ginger for zing and can even at a bit of cream for richness

Made this so many times; ideal aga recipe! Like most folk, I reduce the stock to 1L (depends on the size of the potato) and have also substituted a sweet potato in the past. It all works - a fail safe recipe.

I only added half a litre of stock because I like it thick. In fairness it was too thick and ended up more like a puree. That aside the flavours were epic and I would definitely make this again only with about twice the stock!

Always a winner. Make double amount for my son and I to take to work for lunch in the week. I follow the recipe and comes out great.

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.

The recipe is referring to the fresh coriander packs available in supermarkets and not the dried type. I used it and it was delicious!

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.

Outstanding, tasty and cheap recipe!!! Just a small thing I do is add 1 tsp of paprika just after it has boiled - adds a bit deeper colour.

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.
