    Tessa Morales's Note:

    My 2 year old loved this soup. Can be frozen. Great way to go through some carrots. Light meal for a summer day and hot and warming for a cold day.

      I love this recipe, it is so fresh tasting! A great cream soup alternative which is elegant. I use olive oil rather than butter to make it even healthier, but have made it with butter (extra yum) for special occasions. Sometimes I use baby carrots and don't pre-slice, just make sure they are cooked until soft. Serve with a lime wedge to squeeze over just before eating for a real treat!

      This is not a thick soup but rather one that is good for a summer meal. We ended up grating cheese into it and it should be eaten with bread. Enjoyed by all.

      We have been making this soup now for years and I just realized that we've never posted a review. We absolutely love this soup. It's simple, it's delicious, good in all weather (especially nice in winter with toasted Italian bread loaf w/ melted cheese on top), we feel good about eating it and serving it to our kids. We love it so much that we make double, sometimes triple batches, and freeze the rest to take out (weekly in the winter). We double the broth, triple the onions and ginger, and use just over double the carrot amount. So, 12 c. of broth, 6 onions, 6 Tbs. grated ginger, 4lb. of carrots and we do 1/4c. butter with 1/4c. coconut oil. The most tedious part is peeling the 4 pounds of carrots. The onions I put into the food processor with the thickest slicer attachment (otherwise they're mush and don't cook nicely) so that makes quick work of those. We like to slightly caramelize the onions before adding in the ginger as well. Thanks for a great recipe!
