It’s been many years since the creation of my honey carrot soup recipe, I thought it was about time for a new one to fall in love with!

It also occurred to me that I haven’t had my slow cooker out in quite a while and that needed rectifying!

Ingredients

Here’s all you need to know about the ingredients needed for this recipe.

  • Onion – A medium brown onion works best. I personally wouldn’t switch for red onion here as it might overpower the main flavours of the dish.
  • Carrots – Regular carrots are great in this recipe. No need to get fancy with expensive chantenay carrots or anything! Size also doesn’t really matter as you’ll be chopping them into equal pieces.
  • Potato – Again, no need to get fancy. Just a medium baking potato works perfectly.
  • Vegetable Stock – I like to use Knorr stock pots (affiliate link) as the flavour always seems nice and rich. You can use cubes or fresh stock if that’s what you have.
  • Ground Coriander – Don’t skip this if you can help it. It adds a rich, deeper coriander flavour which works perfectly with the fresh coriander.
  • Salt & Pepper – I like to use sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper but, honestly, table salt and ground pepper will work too. Just don’t leave it out whatever you do!
  • Fresh Coriander – This is KEY. Do not leave out the fresh coriander. No need to ditch the stalks either – there’s tons of flavour lurking there!

Recipe tips

Here are some helpful tips to keep you on the right track when making this slow cooker carrot and coriander soup.

  • Use the freshest and best ingredients that you can buy. This is important, especially in a recipe as fresh as a homemade soup!
  • Try to cut ingredients to a similar size so they cook at a more even pace.
  • Make sure you season with salt and pepper to bring out the best flavour from your ingredients.
  • Allow your soup to cool before blending. Hot liquids have a tendency to explode in enclosed high speed situations!
  • You can make this recipe in advance and freeze in individual portions. This helps save you time and waste less!

Allow your soup to cool a little before attempting to blend. (Blending hot liquids can be dangerous and a bit explosive!)

I personally use my NutriBullet (affiliate link) as it turns everything into a smooth, velvety dream! (Every blender I’ve had has been rubbish in comparison.)

Blend in batches until your soup is silky smooth throughout. (Or use a stick blender and do it right there in the slow cooker.)

At this point I recommend cooling your soup completely and allowing it to chill in the fridge for a day before eating. This allows the flavours to blend together harmoniously.

When you’re ready to eat, simply heat in a saucepan until piping hot and serve with a nice crusty loaf.
