Carrot and Coriander Soup

One of my favourite things to do in the winter is to light the fire, grab a good book and a blanket and just relax. The only thing to make these winter reading sessions better is to have a bowl or mug of hot, tasty soup. That’s why I couldn’t let January go by without sharing a soup recipe with you all and the one I chose was this Carrot and Coriander soup!

There are so many amazing soup flavours out there, during pumpkin week I shared my Roast Pumpkin Soup which has become one of my favourites.

This carrot and coriander soup is full of flavour! You can taste the carrot, you can taste the garlic and the coriander. I know it is so easy to open a can of soup, but when you make it fresh and it has so much flavour you wonder why you ever bother to have canned!

The best thing is you can have soup that is healthy and good for you and still get that comfort food feeling!

My carrot and coriander soup is so easy to make. Plus you could make it even easier by using ready peeled and chopped carrots. 😉

Hopefully my photos will have done this soup justice and you’re now desperate to get this soup made and eaten. While you’re making it you could easily double the recipe and freeze it in individual portions so you can have homemade soup everyday! I’m off to have a bowl for my lunch now. 🙂

Carrot and Coriander Soup

Servings 4


  • 500 g peeled and chopped carrots
  • one onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • three cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1.2 litres vegetable stock
  • 150 g dried red lentils
  • large handful fresh coriander chopped
  • creme fraiche to serve optional


  1. Heat a large lidded pan and add the oil, carrots and onion. Cook until they start to soften, I like the onion to have a little colour.
  2. Add the coriander, cumin seeds and garlic and cook for another minute.
  3. Pour in the stock and add the red lentils, cover and simmer for 30 minute or until the carrots and lentils are soft.
  4. Blend the soup in a blender, in batches or in the pan with a handheld blender.
  5. Season to taste stir through the fresh coriander.
  6. Serve in a bowl or mug with a swirl of creme fraiche.

    This soup looks absolutely delicious! Strange as it may sound, I fell in love with making carrot purees for my daughter’s baby food. I was always adding different seasonings to “spice” it up. I love your idea of adding coriander to this soup because I think it will add a real depth of flavor. I can’t wait to check it out!

    I love this! Never though of a carrot soup before, shame on me! I never use vegetable stock, I always use the stock of the vegetables that I use to make the soup and is works like a charm!
