- Begin by peeling the carrots. On a chopping board, cube the carrots into even chunks and chop up the onion into small pieces and set to one side.
- In a large pan over a medium heat, add the oil and chopped onions. Cook until the onions are soft.
- Add the carrots into the pan and sauté the ingredients for 2 minutes.
- Tip: For extra thickness, add a tin of tomatoes or chopped up garden tomatoes to the pan for a more substantial soup.
- Boil some water either on the hob or by using the kettle. Pour the boiled water over the carrots and onions, just enough to cover the contents of the pan.
- Tip: Add less water to begin with as you can always add more to thin the soup later.
- Add salt and pepper for taste, alongside 1 tsp of the ground coriander.
- Using a soup blender, or a regular blender, blend the soup until it has reached a desired thickness. Tip: For a thinner soup, add more water.
- Once blended, your simple carrot and coriander soup is ready to serve hot.
