Potato and Coriander Soup

February 18, 2015

Poor Tooth

My tooth was hurting more by the day, it was becoming unbearable.  I have had this problem for 2 – 3 years and the pain just kept coming back no matter what the dentists did.  Complete con artists! Whatever will get them the most money! I cannot believe how expensive healthcare is.  Even if you are exempt from some fees you still have to pay for various procedures.  I understand that dentists need to be paid, but it really sucks that people have to endure tooth pain… any kind of pain for that matter longer than they should because they cannot afford it. This is a recipe for all my poor sick people.  And even if your not sick and poor cook it anyway and think about how  lucky you are.  This soup is lovely, full of flavour, easy to make if your’re sick and easy on the teeth. The high carbohydrate content helps food cravings.  Sweet potato can be added as well/

This recipe was taken from The Soup Book (Dorling Kindersley Limited, 2009).


1 small bunch of fresh coriander, 2 onions (peeled and chopped), 2 garlic cloves (peeled and chopped), 3 tbsps olive oil, 900g British potatoes (peeled and cubed), 2 pints chicken stock, salt and pepper.


1. Cut the stalks from the coriander and tie them in a bundle with string.
2. Chop the leaves finely and reserve for later.
3. Heat the oil over a medium heat in a large pan and fry the onion and garlic.
4. Add the potatoes and coriander stalks, stir them and cover on a low heat for 5 minutes.
5. Add the stock, salt and pepper and then bring to the boil.
6. Simmer until the potatoes are very tender.
7. Remove the bundle of coriander stalks.
8. Liquidize the soup.
9. Stir in the coriander leaves and re heat gently.
10. Season to taste before serving.
