Barbara's Creamy Carrot Bisque

This is my mother's soup, it is so easy and unbelievably delicious. I made it at the last minute for my New Year's Eve guests and I received raves. It is convinient as the vegetables can be made ahead of time and reheated with the soup with the cream/half & half with the cheese at the last minute. I use less cheese, use at your discretion!

This was just okay for us. I don't know what I was expecting, but this tasted more like a potato soup than carrots. We both thought it needed something...Made for PAC Fall 2009.

I saw this recipe and have been craving it ever since! I whipped this us tonight and it was indeed wonderful. The ginger and the cheese really make this special. Tell your mom "thanks." I will be looking for more of your recipes, Jules127. Roxygirl
