Carrot And Coriander (cilantro) Soup

1 pound of carrots, chopped
1 Onion, chopped
At least 1 pt of stock
2 tbsps ground coriander (cilantro)
A handful of fresh coriander (cilantro), chopped roughly

In a very large saucepan or stockpot, sweat your onion until soft, then add the carrots and the ground coriander. Keep over a fairly low heat and sweat for a good long while. I left them for about 30 minutes whilst I did something else - returning every now and then to stir them.

When they're starting to soften slightly, add your stock - I used at least a pint of good quality vegetable stock, but I can't be exact with quantities - and leave to simmer until the carrots are soft and done.

When that happens, put the whole lot in a blender and blend the living daylights out of it. (I say 'whole lot'... I had to do it in batches because my blender is quite small...)

Stir in your fresh coriander and serve in big bowls with buttered bread.

You could add some creme freche or cream in a pretty swirl, if you were feeling fancy!

This was a recipe I threw together as a bit of an experiment and it worked well, thankfully. Carrot and Coriander soup is very popular here in the UK (not sure if its as popular in the US - I hope so because it's delicious!)

This made 2 really generous main meal servings, so would serve more as a starter or snack
