My husband loves this soup because of the flavour, I love it because it is easy to make with store cupboard ingredients. Everybody has an old onion and some carrots lying in the fridge and we have coriander growing in the garden.
4 large carrots (sliced)
2 pints of vegetable stock
1 tsp dried ground coriander
handful of fresh coriander
1 tbsp vegetable oil
Heat the oil in a large lidded pan and sweat the onions and carrots for 5 minutes. Stir in the ground coriander and add the vegetable stock. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
Blitz with a hand blender and add fresh coriander to taste. Blend again. This keeps in the fridge for a couple of days and freezes well.
