Chilli Coriander Soup
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
- 1 teaspoon chilli paste
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 large carrots, peeled and sliced
- 1 large potato, peeled and chopped
- 5 cups (1 1/4 litres) vegetable stock
Preparation:15min › Cook:45min › Ready in:1hour
- Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add garlic, coriander and chilli and gently cook until onion is soft. Add carrots and potato and cook 5 minutes. Pour in vegetable stock and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are soft. With a hand blender, blend until smooth. Top with more freshly chopped coriander leaves or a drizzle of cream if desired.
When puréeing soups, always do so when they are hot. This prevents the puréed soup from getting lumpy and guarantees an even consistency.
Used different ingredients. Can you spell YUM?!!?! Easy and simple recipe. I bought 10 lbs. of carrots accidentally and didn't want any to go to waste. Carrot soup was the perfect answer. Low-fat, low-cal, tastes great and FILLING! I added 4 whole cloves of garlic, didn't peel anything (except the onions) and boiled it all together. Pureed the mixture, added 2 Tbls. coriander, extra chilli powder and juice from a whole lime. If you don't have chilli paste, use chilli powder, salt and vinegar (base ingredients to chilli paste). This soup defined comfort food!! I will definently make it again! This would be a great starter for a Thanksgiving feast. Oh!! I also added 2 extra carrots! ;0) Enjoy!! - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Very good! I used a lot more coriander than stated, and also a tiny splash of lime juice. The chilli paste I used was incredibly hot, so I sloshed in some half-and-half. Thanks, Jennifer! - 29 Sep 2008
I served this at a mexican feast that I made for a friends birthday. Everyone loved it, especially the men. They asked me to give their wives the recipe. I used a little chilli powder and some very hot sauce instead of the chilli paste. Worked great. this will be a staple in our house from now on. bye bye tomato soup. - 29 Sep 2008
