Step 16

When it is soft use a food processor, blender or soup gun to blend it until all smooth. The smoother the better.

Step 17

When it comes out it should be like silky velvet. If it is too thick add in a bit more water.

Step 18

When it gets to this stage season it up with a bit of salt and pepper. Taste it each time and see what else you think it needs. Heat it back up and serve. You can always keep this in the fridge and serve it up any time you are hungry. No need to eat it all at once.

Step 19

Serve it up in a nice bowl. This is just as good for a casual lunch or a fancy dinner party.

Step 20

Nice big dollop of the coriander creme fraiche in the middle and thats it. Throw it up on to the table for your guests and they'll all be as happy as Larry. Delicious.
