Carrot and Coriander Soup Recipe!

This week I am sharing an amazing carrot and coriander soup recipe! It is super quick and easy to make, I love to make this for lunch especially during the colder months.

This soup is packed with nutrients, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, essential fatty acids to name a few. This soup does not contain much protein so I would pair it with a protein source, such as chicken breast or mixed bean salad. I also love to make fresh garlic bread on the side.
