- Heat the oil in a large pan, add the chopped onion and fry until soft. You can also add some water to make sure that the onion doesn't burn and gets soft. Add the ground coriander and chopped potatoes. Anna never measures her spices or herbs and she solely relies on her intuition, but as a guide she said that 1-3 tbsp of the ground coriander will be sufficient.
- In the same time cook 1.5l of chicken or vegetable stock. She usually uses 2 chicken and 1 vegetable cube to make her stock.
- Add the chopped carrots, stock and black pepper (pepper is optional) and bring to boil, then reduce the heat. Cover and cook until carrots are soft.
- Wait for a soup to cool down a little bit and blend it until smooth. You can use food processor, but Anna doesn't have one, so she uses a simple hand blender. Serve topped with the fresh coriander.
Yesterday Anna gave me two boxes of her favourite carrot and coriander soup. I am not a big soup eater, but I learned to like this particular soup. Probably because I am 'forced' to eat it quite often. I asked Anna for her recipe as I want to share it with you. This soup is apparently very healthy and really easy to make. Anna usually makes 4 or 8 portions, gives couple to me, eats herself and freezes the rest.
