Carrot & Coriander Soup Recipe

Making homemade soup is a lot easier than you’d imagine, and this is just the recipe to prove it. Autumnal in colour and flavour, carrot and coriander soup is the perfect way to start a meal, or simply serve with a generous hunk of bread and butter. If you’re worried about wastage, stop right now. Soup is a prime contender for freezing, so you can whizz up a bumper batch and enjoy any leftovers at your leisure.


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 450g carrots, sliced
  • 1.2 litres vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Crème fraiche (optional)


  1. Add the oil to a large pan on a medium heat. Add the chopped onion and fry for 4-5 minutes, until softened.
  2. Add the ground coriander, and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the chopped carrots and vegetable stock, and bring everything to boiling point before reducing to a simmer. Cover with a lid and cook until the carrots are very soft.
  4. Using a food processor or a hand blender, blend until completely smooth. If too thick for your liking, add a little water at a time until you find the right consistency.
  5. Mix in the fresh coriander, season to taste, and reheat before ladling into bowls.
  6. Swirl a tablespoon of crème fraiche into each portion, and serve.
