I have friends coming for lunch and am making carrot soup since I have lots of carrots. They are boiling in stock with a leek and an onion and some garlic as I type. What are the nicest flavourings for carrot soup - coriander, cumin, ginger? We will be having it with bread and cheese (Comte and a goats cheese) and leftover lentil salad (Puy lentils with cherry tomatoes, red peppers and red onion).
That sounds much nicer than my home ec version. Too late now (and no oranges) but I will do that next week. Thanks! Today I think it will be fresh coriander and maybe some ginger to give it a bit more of a lift.
