Carrot & Coriander Soup

Carrot & Coriander Soup, Vegetarian, healthy, low fat

Today I decided I wanted to give the family a healthy low fat lunch and spotting a large bag of carrots and some leftover coriander in the fridge it didn’t take me long to decide what to make. I’d been out to the dentist and buying last minute school stationery with my daughter this morning so we didn’t get to eat until 2pm. The wait was worth it though as everyone loved the soup and there were soon 4 empty bowls. It’s nice to know that you’ve given your family something really healthy as it’s easy to get into a rut at lunchtime and eat the same things (my daughter has a thing for scrambled eggs on toast)!

This was my second attempt at making Carrot & Coriander Soup, the first time I made it I’d mistakenly picked up a bag of flat leaf parsley and so my recipe for Carrot & Parsley Soup came about (which was a big hit here too)!

  13. Sarah, Maison Cupcake

    Such a classic flavour combination, I only wish coriander kept better in the fridge or a pot so I had the fresh variety around for longer. Thanks for submitting to Credit Crunch Munch, your entry has now been featured in this month’s round up.

    1. Camilla

      Yes I hate parting with money for coriander so I really have to pull my finger out and plant some seeds!

  18. Deena Kakaya

    I really like that your soup is not overly thick as a lot of carroty soups are..and that I can see the flecks of green coriander, it makes it all the more enticing. x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Deena, it was really good and I know what you mean about some soups which look more like purees!

  19. Paul Wilson
