  • Add some croutons on top for some extra crunch.
  • If you are keen to experiment with flavours then roast the carrots before adding them to the pan (Chop them up, toss with some olive oil, salt and pepper and roast for about half an hour).
  • If you like your food tad spicy then sprinkle red chilli flakes before serving.
  • Want a more filling soup … go ahead and stir in a can of chickpeas.
  • Word of caution to use a low salt stock, in case you are preparing this soup for young children.
  • You could try topping your soup with some crème fraîche and sprinkle some more coriander and chilli flakes.
  • Thoroughly clean the coriander to get rid of the dirt.
