    This is a wonderful soup that I serve garnished with lemon wedges. Sometimes I add cooked chicken breast or cubed sweet potatoes for texture.

    2. Meanwhile; heat olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Stir in garlic and onion then cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent; about 3 minutes.

    4. Carefully puree the soup in a standing blender or with a stick blender until smooth. Stir in coriander and lemon juice before serving.
