winter warmers #1

I am all for the one pot wonders, I have more cookery books on slow cooking and comfort food than anyone you probably know, so I thought I would share a few with you over the next chilly months to come. This recipe is so quick and easy and only requires one pan a hand blender and a few things you'll find in your larder cupboard. And seen as everyone will be trying to shed those extra festive pounds, it's super healthy but can still be classed as scrummy comfort food. 

Winter Warmers #1
Carrot & Coriander Soup

8 large carrots (more if you have a huge pan)
3 medium potatoes (half the amount of your carrots)
1 large onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsps of ground coriander
2 vegetable stock 
Handful of fresh coriander 
Seasoning

Roughly slice the carrots, potato (I like to leave the skin on as it adds more flavour) onion and garlic cloves and throw them all into a pan. Cover the vegetables with stock, season well and add the ground coriander now bring to the boil. Let the pan simmer for about 15 minutes (or until the veggies are soft) Roughly chop and add in the fresh coriander then taste for further seasoning. 

With a hand blender whiz up the cooled vegetables until there are no large lumps.

For the tortilla chips simply brush some tortilla wraps with olive oil cut into eighths and put them in a pre heated oven for 10 minutes.
