Slow Cooker Carrot & Coriander Soup

Soup, glorious soup! I love a big bowl of soup, especially at this time of year. There’s something so comforting about eating out of a bowl, don’t you think? And then to dunk a big chunk of buttery bread into the bowl. It’s all the noms, basically. This Slow Cooker Carrot & Coriander Soup recipe is one of my favourites for three reasons. Firstly – it’s delicious, secondly, it’s so damn easy to make and, thirdly, it’s cheap as chips.

I use my slow cooker as often as possible, especially during the winter when it really comes into its own. To be able to bung all the ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning, knowing that I don’t have to think about it until it’s time to serve is a Godsend. But at the moment, because I’m trying to shift some weight, I always make a soup in the slow cooker on a Sunday for the week ahead. I make enough to last a few days lunches for me, and also for hubs who takes it into work.

This week I’m making a veggie and butter bean soup, but last week it was Slow Cooker Carrot & Coriander Soup. Here’s the recipe if you fancy giving it a try:
