This weeks’ budget recipe: Laura’s carrot and coriander soup.
Laura, from our Creative Media team, says: ‘We used to go crazy for this when my mum cooked it – and still do! It’s one of my staple soups for cold days, and really nutritious.’
Preparation time: 15 mins, cooking time: 30 mins, serves 4-6.
Total cost = approx. £1.44*
1kg carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground mace
1.5l chicken stock
Knob of butter

Melt the knob of butter in a large saucepan.
Add the onions, salt and pepper and fry for a couple of minutes, then add the carrots and spices and stir until all veg is coated evenly. Fry for another 5 mins.
