WOW, cant believe how easy that was, you should give it a bash. If I can then you certainly can!!

Conveyancer, just dont use so much of the corriander or leave it out alltogether, very flexible.
I would try & keep a little in though as thats definatley what gives it its dinstinct flavour.

Recipe:
* Prep: 5 mins | Cook: 15 mins
* Extra time: 5 mins
* Serves: 6

Ingredients
1 tablespoon of olive oil
4 large carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
1/2 large onion, roughly chopped
900ml (1 1/2 pints) vegetable stock
large bunch fresh coriander, roughly chopped

Preparation method
1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.

2. Saute the carrots and onion for a few minutes until the onion has softened a little.

3. Pour in the vegetable stock and add the coriander. Bring to the boil, and cook until the carrots are tender, about 10 minutes.

4. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

5. Puree the soup until smooth, using a hand blender or food processor. Reheat before serving if necessary. Serve with crusty bread.

Now, I shared this with my wife for a large late lunch, I think if you do it for a starter you could easily get away with it for four people if not the 6 suggested.

I also used a red onion as thats all i had! I think a white would be better so will use one next time.

Let me know how you get on with it :0)

I don't like coriander either. I'd make carrot and coriander soup without the coriander. :lol:

Will. I like 'let love be your umbrella', but shouldn't it be umbrolly?
Keep calm and carry on.

I too dislike coriander, I think it tastes like soap. :mrgreen: Perhaps the title for this recipe is misspelled, it should be carrot and coriander soap. :lol: Although carrot soap would turn us orange, I rename it ‘tango soaup’. :oops:

Yes you are quite right apples, it should say umbrolly...I am a wally. :D

Ahhh thanks Will. Umbrolly looks better. :lol:

If you washed your face in a bowl of carrot and coriander soaup you'd be clean and have a fake tan too. :)

Teehee I hate the fake tan look, I prefer the English pasty rose. :lol: I wash my face with choap, it is a mix of chalk and soap, I don't eat it though, like David eats soap. :wink: :wink: :lol:

I like the pasty rose look too. I'm also partial to a pastie. I don't like the fake tan look either, especially with the brilliant white teeth. :)

I too like pasties, can’t pass a pie shop without buying one. If I did, hubby would wrestle me to the floor and chuck me through the door, purse ready with his order. :lol: :lol:

Isn't it strange that people want to look like a burnt carrot and bleach their teeth so white they blind you? Wouldn’t it be easier and cheaper to make an orange peel mask and show a little pith? Image

I think a lot of people seem to go out of their way to see how daft they can look. Studs sticking out of their tongues, eyebrows etc. Especially the etc. :wink: Women covered with tramp stamps. I think tattoos look horrible. They'll look like creased old comics when they get older. :lol:

Well, each to their own. :lol: When I got my belly button pierced, the guy who did it said a woman came in to have hers done before having a baby, then it stretched in to a giant hole, she then had to join an Aborigine tribe wearing a door knocker...I'm not sure where she put the bell? :lol:
