Delicious! I added a stick of celery and used minced garlic 1 tbsp and minced ginger 2 tbsp. I added the juice of one orange and accidentally used 3 tablespoons of oil instead of 1. I blended the coriander in whole and freash and didn't reheat it - it was fantastic!

What a great tasting dish. It is very aromatic and great balance of flavors. Nice and spicy. I was searching for a soup to go with a spinach salad and this was right on the money. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I saved it in my tried and true cookbook.

Nice different twist to the classic carrot soup. I also added some celery and cooked potato. Thanks
