Make A Tasty Carrot And Coriander Soup With this Recipe

It does not matter what the weather is, a soup is always tasty and a welcome treat when the family gets home hungry and tired. Here is a healthy soup that is very easy to make and especially if you have Cuisinart CSB-76 Smart Stick Hand Blender and you can use it to blend the soup in the pot.

It is so much easier blending the soup in the pot with a Cuisinart CSB-76 Smart Stick Hand Blender instead of having to process it bit by bit in a normal blender. This saves you time and extra dishes to wash!

So if you have a Cuisinart CSB-76 Smart Stick Hand Blender you can use it for this tasty soup recipe.

  4. Fry over a gentle heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, and then cover.

  7. Add the stock, bring to the boil and then partially cover and simmer for a further 8-10 minutes until the carrot and potato are tender.
  8. Remove 6-8 tiny celery leaves for a garnish and finely chop about 1 tbsp of the remaining celery tops.

  10. Reduce the heat, add the chopped celery and fresh coriander and fry for about 1 minute, set aside.
