generous handful of fresh coriander, stalks included, chopped
1 lemongrass stalk, outer removed and sliced finely

3 cups carrot, not peeled if organic, chopped
4 cups vegetable stock or bouillon (I use Rapunzel brand)

Fry off the onion in the coconut oil over a medium heat until soft and translucent. Add the garlic, ginger and turmeric and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Add the coriander, lemongrass, potato and carrot, followed by the stock or bouillon and stir together. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for around 20 minutes, or until the carrot is soft.
