Recipe by Sarah_Jayne
One of the trendiest soups over here in the UK at the moment is carrot and coriander soup. Coriander is the same thing as cilantro only by a different name. I have enjoyed this soup but because of my dietary requirements have avoided it because creamy soups like this so often use a lot of cream. So, I was happy to find this version of the soup in the August 2008 copy of BBC Good Magazine because it doesn't use any dairy at all. I have now tried the recipe and think it is fantastic. It is very rich and creamy tasting without any at all.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander or 1 teaspoon cilantro
- 1 potato, chopped
- 1 lb carrot, peeled and chopped
- 2 pints vegetable stock
- 1⁄2 cup fresh coriander or 1⁄2 cup cilantro

- Cover and cook for 20 minutes until the carrots are tender.
