Easy soup. Good way to get more carrots into your diet. Filling and healthy. My suggestion to make this recipe easier: Boil diced carrots and potatoes in small amount of water until tender, mash (e.g. w/ potato masher), and then add the chicken broth to your desired soup consistency. Alternative to pureeing in a blender.

Very tasty and nutritious! I used more than double the garlic stated in the recipe, and I think I will use even more next time I make this soup.

This soup is the best soup ever!!! Loved it! Had to make a couple of changes: used beef stock (from stock cubes, didn't have chicken), slightly more potatoes, 1 teaspoon of herbes de provence (didn't have italian seasoning) and no bay leaf. Turned out great. 1st choice for comfort food now :)
