I do love a good ol’ Classic.

And this is surely a classic favourite we all love right?


I’m always a little unsure whether to post recipes like this because it’s so basic and so simple, but then I remember the many times when I began cooking from scratch and everything was homemade, and I didn’t know where to start! Recipes such as this were very useful and are the stepping stones to a homemade healthy lifestyle.

Carrot and Coriander

Making your own Soup is one of the easiest and simplest things you can make. It is nearly as simple as heading down to the Supermarket, choosing your desired Soup from the shelf, paying for it, taking it home and removing it from the container, placing it in a bowl and heating it up in the microwave or stovetop. That sounds long winded right!?

Well homemade Soup is super simple, and it is even more simple if you have a Soup Maker. If you’ve read my blog before, you’ll know that I am such a fan of my Soup Maker, not only does it make my Soups but it also makes my Sauces now too; thanks to a little brainwave!


This ‘Carrot and Coriander Soup’ is possibly one of the easiest you could make. The main star ingredients are of course, Carrots and Coriander. Carrots are a staple ingredient in an English diet, but one I don’t use or buy very often, and if I do I will always make this ‘Carrot and Coriander Soup’. Coriander (or Cilantro to my American friends) in its Fresh form is a lovely green leafy herb which has quite a distinctive, pungent flavour which I personally love and often use it for a garnish or in Sala, but I know my Mother hates it, so perhaps if you’re not a fan of Coriander, this Soup isn’t for you! Sorry.


When I make my Soup, admittedly I’m quite lazy because for me, Soup is a meal that is supposed to be as quick and easy as possible and I don’t want to make it too fancy. Have you ever tried making Soup fancy? It’s no easy task? Presenting Soup to look fancy, is also no easy task I can assure you!


So yeah, I keep the ‘Carrot and Coriander Soup’, as simple as possible, by simply combing all the ingredients in my Soup Maker and letting it do its thing, and 30 minutes later, it is ready for the taste test, which is when it can be seasoned and I often add a little extra fresh Coriander as I love it to be full of flavour.

Serve your ‘Carrot and Coriander Soup’ lovely and warm with a slice of homemade bread (I made a Rye Loaf – pictured here), a drizzle of Soya-based Cream is desired and Fresh Coriander to garnish. This Soup will make enough for 4 servings, and is perfect to store in the fridge for up to 3 days, for a quick lunch.
