Creamy Carrot and Coriander Soup

Need something quick, filling  and healthy for the coming cold winter season. I think making a creamy soup will do the trick 🙂 Carrots and coriander are regulars in my fridge, that’s why I decided to try and make soup out of them. They’re perfect for quick stir fries, broth and salad.


  • 1/2 kilo carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 piece potato chopped
  • 1 litre water (750 ml if you want it to be thicker)
  • 1 vegetable or chicken stock cubes
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 to 3 tbsp single/double cream (optional
  • a handful of fresh coriander and some more to garnish


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan, and the onions and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Stir in the ground coriander, cook for 1 minute. Add the carrots, potato, water and stock, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and cook covered for 20 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Remove from heat and cool down slightly.
  2. Tip to the food processor/mixer with the fresh coriander, blitz until smooth. Add the optional cream at this stage. Return to clean pan, season to taste, reheat to serve.
