Carrot and coriander is a classic soup recipe - and it's easy to make in the comfort of your own home. This light recipe is only 102 calories per portion so it makes a nice low-cal option for lunch. The strong, herby flavours of the ground and fresh coriander complement the carrots beautifully. This recipe serves 4 people and will take around 35 mins to prepare and cook. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can also freeze this soup, defrost in the fridge overnight and reheat thoroughly before serving again.


  • 1tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 450g carrots, washed and sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1tsp ground coriander
  • 1.2 ltr vegetable stock
  • 3tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • Freshly grated nutmeg to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Garnish with a swirl of single cream (or soya cream for a dairy-free soup).


  1. Sauté the onions, carrots and garlic in a large pan with the oil for 4 mins. Once they have softened, but not coloured, add the ground corinader and stir. Season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Pour the vegetable stock into the pan and bring to the boil. Cover the pan and allow to simmer until the carrots are tender, this should take around 20 mins.
  3. Stir through the fresh corinader, remove from the heat and blend the soup, adding the lemon juice, nutmeg and seasoning to taste as you do. You can use a hand blender or a food processor to blend your soup.
  4. The soup will have cooled whilst blending, so if you plan to eat it right away, gently reheat the soup, without boiling it, and serve. If you are saving it for later, allow to cool and place in a airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
