Top Review by Annacia

This is a lovely, mild but flavorful, soup. It's rich and creamy and would be ideal as a first course at Thanksgiving or Christmas or as a light meal for one who want's to snuggle by the fire and watch the snow fall outside (or a warm up after coming in doors or..................). Well you get the picture. If you need any more encouragement just look at the light calorie load! wow. Did I say that it's delicious? the flavors are a comfortable symphony that will last to the last spoon full. If possible use sweet young carrots and not the great big woody old things. This recipe will not disapoint.
