We recommend serving this carrot and coriander soup recipe with a generous serving of fresh crusty bread. For a gut-friendly choice, opt for sourdough. Sourdough is naturally fermented, meaning the tough outer shell of the grain is broken down before we eat it. This makes it easier to absorb and is gentler on our gut. Plus, making your own sourdough ensures you know exactly what’s in the recipe.
