It comes as a surprise to some people that I’m not a great lover of soups. I generally find them bland and uninteresting.

The cost of buying fresh cartons of the stuff puts me off too, and I always find the tins to be a little artificial tasting.

However, there are a few soups that I just love, and Carrot and Coriander Soup is one of them!

The combination of the sweet, earthy carrots with the fragrant coriander is perfect for any season but especially Autumn.

The colour is enough to make anyone forget the darker evenings and the cooler temperature!

This Carrot and Coriander soup is really quick to make and super thrifty.

Top of my list of favourite kitchen gadgets at the moment is this Tower Hand Blender.

You can get this on amazon.

I love this hand blender as it has a masher attachment included and is perfect for making our Creamy Mashed Potatoes

All soups needs a good garnish and on top of this Carrot and Coriander soup is some crispy match sticks of carrot.

This really adds some texture and makes the soup look so fancy, without much effort at all! I used my amazing Deiss peeler (aka match stick slicer!) to make these.

An airfryer is a must-have gadget when following a slimming plan. I use this Breville VDF105 Halo Plus Health Fryer – White/Green to cook these carrot match sticks.

This air fryer is also great for making these Salt and Pepper Chips!

  • Crush the coriander seeds in a heavy pestle and mortar – you can use ground coriander but there tends to be more flavour in the whole seeds. Add to the saucepan.

  • Meanwhile, julienne the remaining carrot into thin match sticks. Add to the air fryer and spray with low calorie cooking spray and a pinch of salt flakes. Cook until crispy.
  • Chop the fresh coriander. Add the chopped stalks and half of the leave into the saucepan and simmer until the carrot and potato is tender.

  1. Going to try this today, I’m unable to get out but do you have to use fresh coriander? I’ve got everything but that. Thank you x

  2. Tried this recipe for the first time. Think I may have used too much coriander – I used a whole bag – as it was quite green when blended, so added more carrots – tastes OK, How much fresh coriander is needed ? I read a bunch as a bag!

    1. Is there a low calorie alternative for crisping the carrot matchsticks if you don’t have access to an air fryer? I do hope so!
