For the next ten consecutive weeks, over 80 bloggers will be writing every Monday at 6:30pm about many different things, all beauty, lifestyle or fashion related. You can view everyones posts by going to the hashtag on twitter "TeenBlogSeries". If you would like to supply products for the giveaway, get involved, or have any questions, please email: anouskateenblogger@googlemail.com.

It's already the 4th week of #TeenBlogSeries and I absolutely love this weeks topic, Healthy Food Recipe, so I am really looking forward to reading everyone else's posts! This is actually my first cooking post and I am so excited to share with you one of my favourite dishes.
For me, carrot and coriander soup is the epitome of an autumn dish. This soup is really healthy, absolutely delicious and super easy to make so it is perfect for those cold autumn nights. This is my mums recipe which she has been using for years and I am sure we will both be using it for years to come.
Ingredients ( 4 servings)
-5 large carrots
-1 large onion
-Half a bunch of coriander
-1 vegetable stock cube
-2tsp oil
-1 litre boiling water
-Salt and pepper to taste
First, chop the carrots, onions and coriander, make sure you finely chop the onions!
Next, heat the oil in a large pan and add the chopped onions, fry for a few minutes until the onions are translucent.
Add the chopped carrots and coriander to the pan.
Next, you can either pre make the stock by mixing a stock cube with the water and then pour it over the vegetables (or you can do what I did and get carried away with taking photos so pour the boiling water in the pan and then add a stock cube), give it a quick stir.
Add salt and pepper to taste and give it one final stir before covering and leaving it to simmer for about 30 minutes.
Remove the pan from heat and blend together, I used a hand blender but a food mixer works fine too.
If you find your soup to be too watery you can add some vegetable stock granules and leave for a few more minutes over heat until thickened.
That's it, your soup is finished! I always have buttered rolls with my soup, although it is just as great without.
I hope you liked this tutorial, make sure you leave a comment below letting me know your favourite healthy food recipes, Iwould love to try them!
