Carrot Coriander Soup

Nothing like some hot vegetable soup on a rainy day, is there? I make this carrot coriander soup often – it is filling, easy to make and great for health.

You Need:

  • Carrots – 3, medium-sized
  • Coriander leaves – 1/2 cup, packed
  • Onion – 1 medium-sized
  • Peppercorns – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt – to taste
  • Butter – 2 teaspoons

How To Make Carrot Coriander Soup:

Scrape the carrots and cut them into large cubes. Peel and chop the onions coarsely.

Heat two teaspoons of butter in a pan. Add to the pan a teaspoon of peppercorns and onions. Cook for 4 minutes, or till the onions are translucent.

Carrot cubes go in next. Cook covered on medium heat, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the coriander leaves to the pan and continue to cook till the carrots are soft enough to yield when a fork is plunged into them.

Let the pan cool to room temperature. Add salt to taste. Transfer the contents of the pan in a blender and puree to smooth paste.

Put the carrot-coriander puree back into the pan and bring to a boil, along with water enough to get the desired consistency. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Serve carrot coriander soup hot with a sprinkle of chopped coriander leaves and a dollop of butter.

    Mmm..very classic. Should try this for my daughter instead of carrot juice which she does not like :)
