The winter is drawing in & there’s certainly nothing better to fight off the coldness than a bowl of steaming hot soup. So we popped down to Little Kitchen on Wick Rd to learn how to create the most perfect of soups – their incredible Spiced Carrot & Coriander soup. It’s dead easy to make and doesn’t cost the earth, but it certainly packs a spectacular blend of flavours. Remember: Freeze any you have leftover for those super bleak days where braving blizzards and crawling to the shops is just all too much!
- 100g carrot
- 1/2 onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp coriander
- 1/4 tsp chopped fresh ginger
- Pinch salt
- Olive oil
- Small bunch Fresh coriander
1. Chop the carrot and place onto foil with whole garlic clove, spices and splash olive oil. Cover with the tin foil and bake at 200 degree for 30 mins.
2. After 30 minutes, open the foil to allow the carrot to caramelise for a further 10 minutes.
3. Diced the onion and finely chop the ginger, fry on low heat in 1/4 tsp oil. When the carrot is out of the oven, squeeze the whole garlic out into the pan, and add the caramelised carrot, stir for a minute.
4. Add 200ml water and 1/4tsp of stock, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
5. Pour the mixture into a jug, add the fresh coriander and blitz until smooth. Adjust seasoning to taste.
And you’re done. Serve it up however you want, be that in a mug, some hipster enamel bowls or direct to mouth from jug with ladle – the choice is yours! Check back real soon for some more Little Kitchen recipes.
