Oh. My. Goodness. The temperature here in London has really dropped over the past couple of weeks.
But…as much as we might complain about the colder months, nothing shouts winter warmer louder than a bowl of delicious soup.
Yuuum. Step right forward our roast carrot and coriander bowl of deliciousness.
It’s a flavour combination that goes back as far as the dawn of time, so we’re told.
We also add ginger for that wonderful warmth and tang, as well as chilli flakes for a little heat.
Then we top our soup with a swirl of vegan single cream, a sprinkling of crispy onions (available at most supermarkets) and fresh coriander.
