Carrot & Corriander Souprise
Pretty simple soup for summer or spring (I don't think it's summer yet?). Anyway it's so easy to make, someone with no hands and only 2 out of the 5 senses could do it. Here we go:
Take a bunch of carrots, I used quite a lot but it made 2 bowls worth. Chuck them into a pot with diced onion and chicken stock and powdered corriander. It takes a while to cook, so go and paint a picture or something. When you can't bear waiting anymore go add some fresh corriander and give it a stir. Next you can go the smooth route (if you have less backbone than a worm) or you can be a man and have a lumpy soup. Because I still have a full set of working teeth and can chew my food I simply mashed up the mixture then took a handwhisk to it for good measure to break the carrots up. Then just serve in a bowl and top with yet more corriander and if you want to make it a bit creamy add some cream or milk if you are poor. Voila, cheap and tastey soup.
