After 30 minutes remove from the heat and allow to cool, to save yourself from potential burns and your blender from a melt down.  Whilst cooling, finely chop the 4 tablespoons of fresh coriander. 

Once cool, squeeze in the juice of half a lemon and add a pinch or two of salt and pepper.  Transfer the soup to a blender and give it a good whizz.  Once it is blended, stir in the chopped coriander.
