Carrot and Coriander Soup

Meat monsters such as our family need something as simple as a soup to mellow our diet. Especially after you attend a nice wedding where all kinds of meat from chicken, pork and fish were served, and you take every opportunity on savoring good measures of each dish. So this week we decided that we stick to soups for a nutritious and healthy us..I decided on a recipe from my aunt on Carrot and Coriander Soup. I'm also sending this vegan/ vegetarian soup for the theme: 'Soup for the happy soul' this month's monthly mingle hosted by Harini.

Ingredients (Recipe Courtesy: Freeda Ipe)
Butter - 1tbs
Onion - 1 large finely chopped
Ginger - 1 tsp grated
Water - 4 cups
Vegetable Stock Cube - 3 crumbled
Carrots - 400gms cleaned, peeled and chopped
Fresh Cilantro - 1tbs chopped

Melt butter into a saucepan, saute the onion and grated ginger. Stir over a medium flame till the onions become transparent pink. Add in the water, crumbled stock cubes and carrots and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for about 8-10minutes until the carrots are tender. Blend the mixture once slightly cooled, stir in the coriander. Cool and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving or serve warm with some croutons.


  1. yes latha especially for unpredictable bangalore!

  2. carrot soup looks smooth and well perfumed with coriander, that is so comforting!! we love soups for dinner :)

  3. actually my comfort lies in the warmth of the soup whereas my husband likes it cold.
