Creamy Carrot & Cilantro Soup

Nothing will be really comforting to have a bowl of hot or warm soup with loads of veggies and aromatic herbs when its rainy or very cold, here is one among those delicious and flavourful soup with carrots and coriander leaves, this soup takes very less time and u can go for any other veggies instead of carrot and while herbs i would like to keep coriander leaves to make out this filling and delicious soup..Climate change often here in Paris, sterday we had a sunny day and day before sterday it was rainy..its really difficult for us to dress up according to the variations of climates, anyhow having soup for dinner with toasted breads suits prefect for everyone at home....The lil ones at just loved this creamy and healthy soup, as the tastes was slightly sweet coz of carrots and really flavourful coz of coriander leaves i used in this soup...This soup suits marvellously for kids between 24months to 36months when they are served with few chicken chunks..




1/4cup Coriander leaves
2cups Carrots (chopped)
1no Onion(chopped)
1/4cup Low fat cream
2nos Garlic cloves(minced)
2cups Vegetable stock/Water
Salt
Pepper powder
1tbsp Olive oil

Heat the olive oil in a heavy bottomed vessel, add immediately the chopped onions and minced garlic cloves..Stir until onions turns transculent, now add the chopped carrots and coriander leaves, saute everything well until the coriander leaves get shrinks..now its time to add the vegetable stock/water, salt and pepper powder..cook everything in simmer with lid closed for 10-15minutes, put off the stove...Blend this cooked veggies with hand blender by adding the low fat cream gradually, serve hot with toasted breads!

Enjoy!

  16. Simple, comforting and healthy soup. Looks great. I am not not a big fan of carrots so I would love to combine cilantro rather than have just the carrots.
