  4. This sounds lovely, I love carrots in soup! I usually add a dollop of Thai curry paste instead of the chilli and lemongrass (but that's just because I'm lazy!)

  6. Carrot soup is such a good frugal one to make. I love the combination of carrot and coriander - I tend to alternate between that and carrot with cumin

  31. Oh wow, this soup sounds absolutely delicious. Not sure I'd purchase the gadget purely because the cost seems a little high for the amount of use I'd get out of it, I just tend to do my soups in the slow cooker, but I really think it would be a great gadget for those that like to enjoy soup often xxx
