Carrot and Coriander (Cilantro) Soup

READY IN: 40mins
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.
