Peel the turnips and cut them into 4 or 6 cubes. Cut the onion, garlic into even slices and the ginger in small wedges.
Put the oil in a stockpot, add the coriander seeds and the ginger, give it a stir to release the aromas. Then add the onions and cook down until soft. Now add the turmeric, garlic, turnips and carrots, fry for 1 minute on high heat. Pour the vegetable stock into the pan, let it simmer on a medium heat for about 20/ 25 minutes.
Meanwhile cut the snow peas lengthwise into thin strips. Put some aside for the topping. When the soup is nearly done, take out the ginger (you don’t want a big peace in your mouth while eating) then add the snow peas and cook it for about 2 minutes. They should have a bite to them. Add lemon juice, some salt & pepper to taste and top it off with the rest of the snow peas.
