Spicy Carrot Soup

This is my version of a recipe from a book by Anjum Anand called "Eat right for your body type" where all the recipes are inspired by Ayurveda principles.  An interesting read and full of healthy but tasty recipes.

Spicy Carrot Soup

1 tsp sunflower oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 piece of ginger root (about 5cm), peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
300g carrots, diced
2 tbsp red lentils
3/4 litre of veg stock

Gently fry onion until soft then add garlic and ginger.
Stir for 1 min and add spices.
Stir for 30 secs.
Add carrots, lentils and stock.
Simmer until carrots are soft then blitz with a stick blender.

It has a gentle warming spicy taste rather than a fiery kick.  Enjoy!
