This is a simple, but very nutritious and tasty soup. It is made with carrots, which are rich in beta carotene, and coriander, a beneficial phytonutrient.


  • 1 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp dried ground coriander
  • 1 potato
  • 1 stick celery
  • 6 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 litre (about 2 pints) vegetable stock
  • a handful of fresh coriander


  • Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the onion and fry for 5 minutes until soft.

  • Stir in the garlic, ground coriander, potatoes and celery, and cook for 1 minute.

  • Add the carrots and stock, bring to the boil and reduce the heat. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes, or until the carrots are soft.

  • Add the fresh coriander and pour the soup into a food processor, or using a hand-held blender, blitz until smooth.

  • Return the soup to the pan, season with salt and pepper to taste, and reheat.

  • Serve the soup garnished with fresh coriander.
