Carrot and coriander soup is a classic and one I reach for more than any. This is so delicious with warm crusty bread, I wanted to eat the entire pot. Making soup from scratch is so immensely satisfying. Mainly because you know exactly what is going in to it.
Helps when you can pick the ingredients from your garden too. I’ve not only used seasonal carrots, but including new potatoes as well. Something that should be ready soon. If you’ve never grown your own carrots and potatoes, I implore you to do so. Not only is it super easy, they hardly need any care. There’s no feeding required, you simply plant them, water and cover with soil. This soup is spicy and warming, it’s great followed by a light salad for a delicious dinner.
