Step 2Meanwhile, to make pesto, place coriander (1/2 cup fresh coriander leaves), macadamias (45g (1/4 cup) raw unsalted macadamias), garlic (3 garlic cloves, crushed) and parmesan (2 tbsp shredded parmesan) in a food processor. Process until finely chopped. With the motor running, add 2 tbs oil in a thin, steady stream until well combined. Add lemon juice (1 tbsp fresh lemon juice) and process until well combined. Stir through 1-2 tbs extra oil to reach desired consistency.

Add the garlic (1 garlic clove, crushed) and cumin (2 tsp ground cumin). Cook, stirring, for 30 seconds or until aromatic. Add the carrot and stock. Bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
Step 4Use a stick blender to blend the soup until smooth. Season.
