Carrot and Coriander Soup

Its heart warming satisfying and especially good in the cold dark winter days. I only decided to make Carrot and Coriander Soup as I was walking around the supermarket as I grabbed a bag of the Wonky Veg variety, carrots to be precise, 37p for a kilo, what a bargain  and then I stumbled across a packet of reduced fresh coriander (10p) so for that money if  I made a bad Carrot and Coriander Soup it wasn’t going to cost me the earth. The perfect cheap dinner idea.

The great thing about Carrot and Coriander Soup is that you make as much as the ingredients allow and then freeze the rest .

It was so easy I just don’t know why I haven took the time to do it before.

When you have added the carrots to the pot make sure you allow enough time for them to sweat. I would even go to the length of letting them brown slightly.  When the carrots start to caramelise this extracts even more flavour from the veg.

Slimming World Carrot and Coriander Soup

The great thing about this soup is thats its practically calorie free. All you are using is fresh vegetables and just 1 tsp of oil to sweat down the carrots. You could eat as much as you like, that’s if you don’t serve it with bread and lashings of butter. My recipe slightly differs from the slimming world one but if you want there recipe its here
