Carrot and Coriander Soup (vegan)

Carrot and Coriander Soup

Adapted from deliaonline. I "veganized" this recipe by using coconut oil and coconut milk instead of butter and creme fraiche, so this soup is also healthier, with 0% cholesterol. I added toasted pumpkins seeds for a nice contrasting crunch to this silky smooth soup.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds carrots about 14-16 whole carrots, peeled, trimmed and cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 small clove garlic crushed
  • 6 cups low sodium vegetable stock

Instructions

  1. Dry roast coriander seeds in a small frying pan over medium heat until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Crush in a mortar and pestle.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a soup pot. Add carrots, garlic and 2 teaspoons crushed coriander seeds. Stir carrots well, then cover pot and let vegetables cook over medium-low heat until they begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Add stock and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes, partially covered, or until vegetables are tender.
  3. Let soup cool slightly, then puree in blender or food processor.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
