This week’s recipe shows you how to make your own Spicy Carrot and Potato Soup. The recipe is as follows: 

Ingredients (Serves 6)

  • 2 white onions, peeled
  • 7 medium carrots
  • 4 sticks celery
  • 1 kg potatoes
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 50g vegetable bouillon paste, prepared with water as per pack instructions
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh coriander, to serve

Method

  • Roughly dice or chop all the vegetables and spray a soup saucepan with a light oil. Gently sauté the vegetables for 10 minutes, then add all the spices allow to cook for a further few minutes.
  • Add the vegetable stock to your saucepan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 30 minutes or until all the vegetables are cooked.
  • Liquidise everything and reheat before serving.
  • Season to taste and garnish with fresh coriander.
