Recipe by Rena Raphael

In England my mother makes this every winter. This soup is healthy and delicious. I like to serve this for lunch with fresh bread.

This is a really simple to make and tasty soup. Ever since I first tasted carrot and corriander soup it has been one of my favourites. For ease I coarsly grated the carrots rather than chopping them, which menat that they also didn't need quite as long to be cooked. I also added some fresh corriander (cilantro) once the soup was done for some extra flavour. I'll probably increase the amount of garlic and ground corriander/corriander seeds a little next time as I felt it needed a little bit of something extra.
