This festive soup is such a bright and flavourful recipe, it would make a good addition to any Christmas meal!
Ingredients (for four):
a little olive oil
8 carrots, scraped and chopped
1 large onion, chopped
a stick of celery, chopped
1 small potato, diced small
2 inch square of fresh ginger, peeled and cut up
1 tablespoon of dried coriander (you could use fresh but it will make the soup go a bit green/brown in colour)
6 or 7 cloves of garlic, crushed or sliced (or even thrown in whole)
a handful of cashew nuts
water as needed
seasalt to taste
In a large pan, fry off the onion, carrot and celery until softened. Add the potato, ginger, coriander, garlic and nuts and cover with water. Bring to the boil and turn down to a simmer for about 20 minutes or until all vegetables are tender. Add salt to taste and then blend it all up! Delicious 🙂
