1. Finely chop your onion or leek. Add a splash of oil to a deep pan or pot. Add the onion/leek and cook gently until softened, 5-10 minutes.
2. Chop your carrots or squash into smallish pieces (the smaller you cut them the faster they'll cook). Add them to the onion/leek. Pop a lid on and cook over medium-low heat until very tender, about 20 minutes. Take the lid off. Add a splash of oil.
3. Fold the ginger and chilli through. Let it sizzle for a moment. Squeeze in the juice from the limes. Add the stock and let it bubble up for a few minutes. Fold in the coconut milk. Warm through.
4. Add a handful of coriander and blend everything together until smooth. Taste. Season, as needed. Pass through a sieve to make the soup even smoother, if you fancy. Garnish with a bit more coriander or some chopped spring onions and serve. Delicious.
