Hello lovelies, did we all have a good weekend? H was away so I enjoyed a very peaceful weekend and got lots of chores done and went for a couple of runs. It was lovely but it was very nice when he returned home to me, albeit a little worse for wear.
Whilst cleaning out the fridge I found many carrots, and some coriander lurking at the back of the fridge. So a lovely, flavoursome and healthy soup was made. It's very filling as well which makes it a really great option when like me you are trying to be good!
Carrot and Coriander Soup
700g carrots, diced
1 tbsp butter
1 dsp coriander seeds
1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 pints chicken stock (use vegetable if you prefer)
