Spiced Carrot Soup


Hello hungry peoples,

Today we are going to make a spiced carrot soup, which is both tasty and a bargain. Carrots are super cheap! The secret to making great hearty vegetable soups is to not hold back on the butter. I also really enjoy the flavour combination of carrot, coriander and ginger, which makes this dish really special. I haven’t been able to convince my family of this so this is a dish I make for myself (thus the small serving size). They are wrong, this is delicious.
