Carrot, sweet potato and coriander soup

Jane’s recommendation:)

I made this the other day and it was delicious. It’s so easy to make, really filling and satisfying. Your treasure box will hum with happiness!


Olive oil

450grams of carrots washed, peeled and cut up

1 large sweet potato peeled and cut up

3 shallots diced

1 clove of garlic crushed

2 pints of vegetable stock

1 packet of fresh coriander chopped (take off all the stalks!)

Black pepper

1 tablespoon of ground coriander 

1 tablespoon of nutmeg

Spring onions to garnish if you like


Begin by sautéing the carrots, sweet potato, shallots and garlic in olive oil using a large saucepan for 5 minutes until they all begin to soften. Stir in the ground coriander, lots of black pepper and cook for another minute or two. Then add your two pints of vegetable stock and bring it to the boil. Leave it on the hob to simmer away for 25 minutes or so. Add in the freshly chopped coriander and a tablespoon of ground nutmeg at the end and some more pepper if you wish. Whizz it all up with a hand held blender.

This serves four or you can do what I did and put it in the fridge and reheat it. It keeps for around four days.

Enjoy! Jane X
