Recipes: Low fat carrot and coriander soup

This is a recipe from the article UK Lunch Box ideas under £1.50. It is designed to be cooked the night before and then either heated up in the microwave at work or reheated before leaving the house and stored in a Thermos flask.

Whatever you choose to do, this is an extremely cheap lunch and low in fat and calories too. It is perfect if you're dieting or on a budget.


  • 2 carrots
  • 1 potato
  • 1 leek
  • 600ml vegetable stock
  • Black pepper
  • Fresh coriander


  1. Wash, peel and chop the vegetables and place in a saucepan.
  2. Cover with 600ml of stock and bring to the boil.
  3. Gently simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Blend the vegetables to a creamy consistency. The potato will thicken it. If too much stock has boiled away the add some more to thin it out.
  5. Season with lots of black pepper and torn coriander.
