Carrot and Coriander Soup and Memories


I made a carrot, coriander, red lentil and pea soup the other day it brings back fond memories as the last time I made this was on Jasmines First Birthday last August. It was a wonderful day, full of laughter friends and family. Isn't it wonderful the great memories we associate with food.

This soup is easy to make and very healthy high in protein, vitamin and minerals and fiber

Jasmine still loves it :)

Ingredients:
  • carrots - 6
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1.2 l vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh coriander/cilantro about 1/2 a bunch
  • one cup small red lentils
  • 1/2 cup frozen petite green peas
Method:
  1. heat oil and add onions and carrots, then add spices
  2. add broth, peas and lentils and simmer for 30-45 min until very soft
  3. use a hand blender to make into a puree
  4. then add fresh chopped fresh cilantro

What are some of your favorite food memories?
