Healthycooking's picture
  Sunflower oil 10 Milliliter (2 Teaspoon)
  Onion 1 , chopped
  Celery stick 1 , sliced (Plus 2-3 Leafy Celery Tops)
  Celery tops 3 (Leafy Tops)
  Potatoes 2 Small, chopped
  Carrots 1 Pound, chopped (Preferably Young And Tender, 450 Gram)
  Chicken stock 1 3⁄4 Pint (1 Liter, 4 Cups)
  Ground coriander 15 Milliliter (2-3 Teaspoon)
  Chopped fresh coriander 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Semi skimmed milk 7 Fluid Ounce (200 Milliliter, 1 Cup)
  Salt To Taste
  Black pepper To Taste

1. Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole or heavy-based saucepan and fry the onion over a gentle heat for 3-4 minutes until slightly softened but not browned. Add the celery and potato, cook for a few minutes, then add the carrot. Fry over a gentle heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, and then cover. Reduce the heat even further and cook for about 10 minutes. Shake the pan or stir occasionally so the vegetables do not stick to the base.
2. Add the stock, bring to the boil and then partially cover and simmer for a further 8-10 minutes until the carrot and potato are tender.
3. Remove 6-8 tiny celery leaves for a garnish and finely chop about 15 ml / 1 tbsp of the remaining celery tops. In a small saucepan, dry fry the ground coriander for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat, add the chopped celery and fresh coriander and fry for about 1 minute. Set aside.
4. Process the soup in a food processor or blender and pour into a clean saucepan. Stir in the milk, coriander mixture and seasoning. Heat gently, taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve garnished with the reserved celery.
