Carrot, apple and coriander soup

I was going to make my usual carrot and coriander soup when I spotted a lonesome apple in my fruit bowl.  I decided to toss it into the soup along with the carrots and hope for the best!  The flavour of the apple comes through quite subtly – the soup is sweet from the carrots and the apple adds a sling zingy-ness to it.

Ingredients: (serves 2)

  • Fry lite spray
  • 1 large yellow onion, peeled and sliced
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 red apple, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • 600ml vegetable stock
  • a handful of chopped coriander
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Spray Fry lite into a pot (large enough to handle 1 litre liquid)
  2. Brown the onions for a minute and add in the carrots and apple
  3. Pour in the stock and leave to cook over a medium heat for 30 minutes
  4. Turn off the heat and check if the carrots and apple and soft using a fork
  5. Once the liquid has cooled slightly, pureé using a hand-held blender
  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  7. Mix the chopped coriander into the soup
  8. Serve with crusty bread
