Carrot and Coriander Soup

Carrot and Coriander Soup

Simple, soulful, and slightly sweet with a touch of spice — you’ll forgive our alliterations when you’ve had a sip. (Too much? Sorry.) This is your dish for chilly fall nights or fancy-casual couch meals, or lunches that’ll make all your coworkers jealous.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • If you don’t have an apple, switch it out with a pear or potato. 
  • For a less rich but still decadent version, use light coconut milk. 
  • In the mood for a little heat? Add chili flakes for a spicy kick.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
