Sunday is traditionally home made soup making day in the Caron Cares household ! I have a huge pot and make a different soup most weeks. Today I made carrot and coriander and several containers of this delicious recipe will be making its way to some of my elderly clients.
Home made soup is not only easy and relatively cheap to make but nutritionally wonderful.
Low fat, full of vegetables containing vital vitamins and minerals not to mention fibre. It is a meal in a bowl and welcomed by the elderly especially as it is filling a warming and an easy meal to eat and digest.
If you fancy making carrot and coriander soup for yourself and perhaps an elderly person you care for, here is the recipe I used.
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 chopped onion
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 chopped potato
- 450g carrots , peeled and chopped
- 1.2l vegetable or chicken stock
- handful coriander (about ½ a supermarket packet)
- Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion, then fry for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the ground coriander and potato, then cook for 1 min. Add the carrots and stock, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat. Cover and cook for 20 mins until the carrots are tender.
