Carrot and Coriander (Cilantro) Soup

“One of the trendiest soups over here in the UK at the moment is carrot and coriander soup. Coriander is the same thing as cilantro only by a different name. I have enjoyed this soup but because of my dietary requirements have avoided it because creamy soups like this so often use a lot of cream. So, I was happy to find this version of the soup in the August 2008 copy of BBC Good Magazine because it doesn't use any dairy at all. I have now tried the recipe and think it is fantastic. It is very rich and creamy tasting without any at all.”
