We’re officially launching our YouTube channel this week with a shiny new look! Which makes this carrot and coriander soup officially our first big video. We’re so excited to share it with you because it’s really different to the normal soups that we make. It’s actually done to more of a traditional recipe, which is fantastic for those of you who don’t enjoy soup so thick it barely drops from the spoon like we usually make!
This soup is full of flavour – the carrot and coriander are both pretty strong, and you can definitely sweeten it up with a bit of maple syrup if you want some extra punch. We served it up with a dollop of creme fraiche and a few rocket leaves on top for a little zing.
Here’s the video so you can see how it’s done!
And now for the recipe – if you give it a go, let us know how you got on by leaving a comment!

- 300g carrots, peeled and chopped (or cheat and buy carrot sticks for a rushed weeknight!)
- 3 small potatoes
- bunch of fresh coriander
- Peel and chop the onion finely.
- Put the onions and carrots into a pan with oil and cover. Sweat gently for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Peel and cut the potatoes into chunks
- Add the potato to the other vegetables and cover with water.
- Cook for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are fully cooked.
- Finely chop the coriander, stalks included.

- Optional serving addition: two tablespoons of creme fraiche plus a handful of rocket.
