Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

30g fresh ginger, grated

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 tablespoon harissa paste

1 teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon ground coriander

2 x 300g packs prepared carrot batons

900ml vegetable stock, made with 1 stock cube

Method

  1. Mist a large pan with cooking spray and cook the ginger and garlic over a medium heat for 2 minutes until softened. Add the harissa and spices and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the carrots and stir to combine.
  2. Pour in the stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, then simmer, covered, for 20 minutes until the carrots are just tender.
  3. Using a stick blender, blitz the soup until completely smooth. Ladle into bowls, scatter over the fresh herbs, season with freshly ground black pepper and serve with the salad leaves on the side.

The soup can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
