Quick & Easy Carrot and Cilantro Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 5 large carrots chopped roughly
  • 1 medium orange, squeezed
  • 3 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 3 Tbsp coconut cream (optional)
  • TO SERVE
  • carrot strips, roasted
  • extra cilantro leaves
  • white and black sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a large saucepan.
  2. Cook onion, season with salt, add carrots and turn heat up and allow to cook for a couple of minutes. Let it get really hot and the carrots begin to brown.
  3. Add finely chopped cilantro, orange juice and pepper.
  4. Deglaze the saucepan with a little stock.
  5. Add enough stock (about 3 cups) to cover the ingredients in the pan and cook until the carrots are tender – about 15 minutes.
  6. Once the carrots are soft add coconut cream (optional) and puree in a food processor (or use an immersion/stick blender) so that it is nice and smooth. Add more stock if needed for desired consistency.
  7. Check seasoning and adjust if needed.
  8. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with sesame seeds, roasted carrot strips and a fresh cilantro.
