Carrot and Coriander Soup (In A Soup Maker)

Carrot and Coriander Soup is one of the nation’s favourite soups – and with good reason! I love carrot soup anyway but adding in some fresh coriander at the end really enhances the flavour.

Carrot and coriander soup is easy to make, you can use ground coriander or fresh coriander, or as I prefer, both.

It’s a good idea to add the fresh coriander to the soup right at the end to get as much flavour as possible. I don’t bother to chop up the coriander leaves, I just throw them all in, stalks and all.

I add them at the end of the soup cycle (I use the smooth setting) and then simply use the blend function on the soup maker which runs for 20 seconds.

How To Make Carrot and Coriander Soup Creamier

If you want to make the soup creamier you can stir in some cream, crème Fraiche or natural yoghurt at the end.

How Many Calories Are In A Bowl Of Carrot And Coriander Soup?

If you’re counting calories you’ll be happy to hear that this soup (as with many other soups) comes in at just 111 calories per serving (this recipe serves 4). Add more calories if you are stirring in any cream or yoghurt at the end.

Side Note: I use the Morphy Richards Soup Makers, I actually have 2 of them, both of them have the sauté function, which I love. There are differences between the two models – I go into greater depth in comparing the two in this post. As a quick summary, the latest one has more features as well as the ability to make fewer portions (and therefore less potential waste) but you also have to keep the lid on to use the sauté function, unlike the previous model where you can sauté with the lid off (which I prefer).

I made this in our new soup maker. Very easy!

I added a clove of garlic and a thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger to the sautéeing onions, as well as the fresh and ground coriander. Also added a potato for consistency, and cream at the end along with more fresh coriander leaves.

Couldn’t believe that 20 minutes would be enough cook time but it was…

I made this soup tonight, I didn't use any dried coriander just fresh. It was superb.

Thank you so much for your valuable information on how to thicken soup. I have made the tomato and basil soup and that was delicious, next soup is Celery because its a bit tough this time. Also the mushroom soup which again was delicious.

Morphy Richards soupmaker I have just bought is the best thing out since sliced bread. Amazing especially at this scary time with Corona Virus.

Very disappointed in the carrot and c. soup. Far too thin. Looked at other recipes and they have a potato in. Had to throw it away although the taste was good. Your comments please.

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy this recipe Margaret. By all means add in a potato if you prefer a thicker consistency - you might find this article useful;

It gives some tips on how to thicken a soup, especially once the soup has been made. It seems such a shame and a waste to throw a meal away when it can be fixed to your personal taste. I hope that makes sense, please do let me know if not.
