    I was recently invited by the lovely team at Tabasco to take part in their latest blogger challenge #FunwithFlavour. As a self-professed spice addict, I love Tabasco pepper sauce. A splash of Tabasco has the ability to transform any dish and I was challenged to put this theory to the test by creating an Ultimate Tabasco menu of starter, main course and dessert with the sauce playing a part in each dish. 

    To help me with the challenge I was sent a range of four Tabasco sauces: original, Habernero (hot), chipotle (bbq) and green pepper (mild). For my starter I decided to go with something light. I love soups but wanted to create something fresh but tasty so opted to spice up a simple carrot and coriander soup I regularly make at home. I love adding chilli to my soup recipes but by adding a soup of dashes of Tabasco, this really packs a punch - not for the faint hearted!

    What you'll need
    • Carrot
    • Onion
    • Tomatoes
    • Coriander
    • Cream
    • Cumin
    • Lemon Juice
    • Chilli flakes 
    • Ginger
    • Black Pepper
    • Vegetable Stock
    • Tabasco Habenero sauce
    Spicy Carrot Soup
    Spicy Carrot Coriander Soup
    1. Heat some oil (I use Lucy Bee's coconut oil) in a large pan, add the onion and ginger and cook for 2-3 minutes until softened 
    2. Add the cumin, chilli and tomatoes and cook for around another minute  
    3. Peel the carrots and add to the pan with the vegetable stock, bringing to the boil and allowing the carrots to cook for 15-20 mins till tender 
    4. Pour the mixture in to a blender. Add a squeeze of lemon, fresh coriander, sprinkling of salt and pepper and a couple of drops of Tabasco
    5. Whizz up and then serve!
