There's nothing I like more in the winter time than a lovely bowl of piping hot soup. A firm favourite of mine is this carrot and coriander soup that my Mum makes. She always sends me back to uni with a package of them. It's delicious, tasty, filling and warming. Here is the recipe for you to give a go this winter!

WINTER WARMER CARROT AND CORIANDER SOUP
In a large pan add the butter and onion, melt on a medium heat
Keep stirring and once the butter has melted, turn to a low heat and put the lid on the pan, leave the onion to soften, but do not let it go brown
Add the carrots, stock and nutmeg
Turn the heat up and bring to the boil
Once boiling turn to a low heat, leave to simmer for about 30 minutes
Test the carrots to see if they are soft - if not, leave for a little while longer, if they are turn off the heat.
Add a sprinkling of salt and pepper to season.
Add the chopped coriander (taste and add more if you wish) and leave to cool
Puree in a liquidiser or blender
At this point you can freeze it in portions or serve it up!
