Low-Fat Carrot & Coriander Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by inekecook

This soup has been created in Thailand, where cooking is often done with a lot of fat - I have created this recipe to teach my cook, as they have no concept of low-fat cooking. You can of course use freshly made chicken stock instead of stock cubes

very good soup, and easy to make, I skipped the chicken stock and tomatooes added a bit of garam masala and maybe a bit too much pepper, but its still good, a bit spicy which is nice with the sweetness of the carrot. Excellent low-cal winter soup!
