Who remembers Live and Kicking?

Once again it's time for a recipe that one of you have sent in - here's my friend Lisa's classic carrot and coriander soup!  Hell yeah!

LISA: This is a quick and easy recipe, which shouldn't cost more than £1 to make, as long as you have a well stocked store of staples and you grow your own coriander. The recipe claims to serve 4, but I could easily get 6 servings of this soup (or 2 if you were serving me - Tim).

You will need:

450g/1lb carrots, sliced
1 large onion, sliced
3tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground coriander
1.2l/2 pints vegetable stock
Few sprigs of fresh coriander

Heat the oil in a large pan. Keep it on a medium heat, and add the carrot and onions.
Make sure everything gets a coating of the oil, and then leave on the heat for the onions to start to soften (it begins to look clear when it's ready). Stir occasionally.
Add the ground coriander and stir. Add seasoning, if required.
Add the stock, then leave to simmer for 15-25 minutes, until the carrots have softened.
Take off the heat, and use a blender to purée the soup.
Finely chop the fresh coriander, and add to the soup.
Voila, there you have it - homemade carrot and coriander soup!!
