Ingredients:

1 tbsp. olive oil;

1 medium onion chopped;

1 tbsp. coriander seeds;

450g (1lb) carrots, chopped;

1 medium sweet potato chopped;

1 liter (2 pints) hot vegetable (or chicken) stock;

1 tbsp. lemon juice;

1 tbsp. coriander chopped and extra coriander leaves to garnish;

2 tbsp. half-fat creme fraiche;

How to Make Cream of Carrot and Coriander Soup:

  • Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion and coriander seeds and cook over a medium heat for 5 min. Add the carrots and sweet potato and cook for a further 5 min.
  • Add the stock (enough just to cover the vegetables) and bring the soup to the boil. Reduce the heat and leave to simmer for 20 min. Leave to cool slightly, then whiz in a blender until slightly chunky. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour the soup into a clean pan, add some more stock if required, and reheat gently stirring in the chopped coriander at the end.
  • Drizzle over the creme fraiche and sprinkle on the coriander leaves. Serve the soup in warmed bowls.
