Carrot, ginger and coriander soup Add to ...

This is a radically different take on a Jewish New Year menu - it fits all the requirements but is not your typical traditional fare. And because of its range of flavours and influences, it makes a fabulous meal to serve at any dinner party.

This soup has a real kick from the ginger; cooking the herbs right in the soup also provides a depth of flavour.

You can add ¼ cup whipping cream into the soup at the end if it is not being used for the holiday dinner.
