0 Carrot and Coriander Soup Recipe

This is the quickest, easiest carrot and coriander soup recipe you will ever make.

It tastes so very delicious and you will love it too !

It is very low in fat and dairy free which means it is a real guilt free treat.

Soups do not need cream, milk and unlimited herbs to make them taste nice, the great thing about home made soup is that at the most, with a pinch of salt, spice maybe and the odd herb, soup can taste wonderful and be so very healthy.

The best flavour comes from the vegetable itself, if you get yourself a good blender you will not believe how you can turn a cooked vegetable into such a fantastic dish.

I use few ingredients in this recipe and the taste is wonderful.

I use dried coriander instead of fresh because as much as I love fresh coriander the whole point of it being carrot and coriander soup is that you can taste the carrots.

Using fresh coriander leaves over powers it too much, So I use dried which is a nice balance of the flavours.

I am sure you will love this soup recipe as much as we did and it is a great winter warmer and so very healthy.

10 Medium Carrots (diced small)
1 Small Onion (diced small)
Large Pinch Dried Coriander
Salt and Pepper
Drizzle Olive Oil

(I use a pressure cooker but if you don't have one you can boil your carrots and onion instead but make sure they are cooked until soft enough to blend into a smooth soup)

Getting Started

In your pressure cooker bottom(without the lid) gently fry your onions in some olive oil until golden brown. Turn the heat off and add your carrots, stir well.

Take your tomato and put 3-4 slits down each side, you do not want to chop it up but do them a little deep.

Place this on top of your carrots. Add enough water so that you can just see the water trying to come through the carrots.

Place the lid of your pressure cooker on, make sure it is secure and safe. Turn the heat back on and bring to the full pressure, now turn the heat down to the lowest you can and let it cook for 7 minutes.

Turn off the heat gently place your cooker under your cold tap, when pressure is released open your lid off.

Your carrots , onion and tomato should be soft now. With a spoon you can take the tomato skin out of the pan and discard it.

Using a blender pulp it all into a soup. Place it into a different pan, add salt and pepper to taste with a large pinch of dried coriander leaves. Simmer for a minute or two then serve.

Enjoy Jeenas Carrot and Coriander Soup as the taste is wonderful.
