Soup to me is a perfect food. If it’s done right, it’s basically just a ton of vegetables disguised as comfort food.
Soup is a hard pitch to my family. Now that it’s beginning to cool down a little in the evenings, I’m determind to make it a more common meal around here. This soup is a longtime favorite of my clients but I rarely make it.
It’s such a simple recipe and around my house carrots are almost always consumed raw so I thought it would be a nice change. Coriander is one of my favorite spices to cook with. It adds such a fresh, light flair to dishes. You could pour a whole bottle of it on a dish and it still wouldn’t taste heavy. It has an amazing ability to just brighten up the whole dish.
I can’t believe a soup with this few ingredients had such an explosive taste. It was so creamy and delicious and totally hit the spot.
I served this alongside a big arugula & asparagus salad and it was hearty and heart warming! The next cool night that comes along- this is your dish!

Heat the oil in a large pot, then add the onion, garlic, and thyme, and coriander and sauté until soft. Add the carrots, parsley, and salt and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
Pour in the vegetable stock, bring to a boil, then cover the pot and simmer for about 30 minutes, until the carrots are tender.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool, then puree in a blender till smooth. If the consistency is too thick add more vegetable stock and puree.
Adjust seasonings to taste and heat through before serving. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
