Great recipe! I had no idea what to expect and the idea of carrot soup has never sounded very appealing to me but I've had a 10 lb. bag of carrots that I've need to put to good use and this recipe was a fantastic use for all these carrots. In fact I'm thinking I'll be sure to have a ton of carrots on hand so I can make this tasty soup on a whim. Thanks so much for sharing this delicious, healthy, simple yet economical recipe. These are my favorite kind of recipe finds.
I thought this soup was easy to make and turned out nice. I used homemade chicken stock instead of the vegetable stock. It added a chicken flavor that was unexpected but pleasant. I enjoyed it hot with homemade bread. Will make again.
We made this one again. Last time we sprinkled a little cheddar on top and some fresh ground pepper on top of that. Went a different way this time because summers almost here. Sliced cucumbers on the diagonal and garnished each bowl with two slices. I then added a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper. This soup tastes great hot or cold. Great for summer!
