1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrot and fry for 2-3 mins, then stir through the stock. Cover with a lid, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 mins, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender. Take off the heat and blend until smooth, adding a splash more water if needed. Add most of the coriander, saving a little to garnish, then blend again until just incorporated. Place over a low heat to keep warm.

2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tsp oil in a frying pan, add the torn bread and fry for 5-8 mins until golden and crisp.

3. Divide the soup between 2 bowls, sprinkle with the coriander and grind over some black pepper. Serve topped with the croutons.
