This Thermomix Carrot and Coriander Soup is a classic combination and perfect for those cool Autumn evenings when the nights are drawing in. With the help of the Thermomix it can be ready on the table in 20 minutes!
Making soups in the Thermomix requires little to no effort and a lot less washing up. I love the ease of throwing everything in and setting and forgetting.
Carrots are in season all year round but this soup is especially warming when the weather cools down after a hot summer here in Melbourne. This Thermomix Carrot and Coriander Soup is also great to freeze if there are any leftovers or if you want to make a batch or two for an instant standby meal.
Thermomix Carrot and Coriander Soup
A warming soup which is perfect for Autumn.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion, peeled and roughly chopped into quarters
- 1 clove of garlic, peeled
- 1 bunch coriander, about a handful
- 500g carrots, roughly chopped
- 2 cups chicken stock (I used Campbells)
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- salt and pepper to taste
Add the onion and garlic to the TM Bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 5.
Scrape down the bowl, add the olive oil and cook for 4 mins/100/speed 1.
Add the carrots and chop for 5 sec/speed 5. Scrape down the bowl, add the chicken stock, ground coriander and cook for 10 mins/100/speed 1.
Once finished, check the carrots are cooked, add the fresh coriander and then blend for 30 sec/speed 9, VERY SLOWLY INCREASING THE SPEED. I always hold the lid with an oven glove just to be on the safe side.
Check for seasoning, consistency - add more water if desired.
Serve immediately with a sprinkling of fresh coriander on top and some warm crusty bread.
To freeze, allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 months.
