    Nana Lee's Note:

    I've revised a recipe I recently posted to make it a fruit/veggie soup in vegetarian/vegan style. Pre-peeled baby carrots make this soup super-easy. This is a takeoff on a recipe I found on Epicurious-Bon Appétit December 2005

      I have never had carrot soup before and this was a very nice and light tasting treat. Would be wonderful for a dinner party or special occasion. I added 1 star anise to this recipe as I made/reveiwed this for My 3 Chefs and star anise was my category. I did use the vegetable broth and unsalted butter along with ground cinnamon instead of sticks.
