Carrot Soup With Dill Pesto

Recipe by Umberle

I pulled this from epicurious and modified it slightly. Works well to make it a day ahead just store the soup separate from the pesto. The pesto is also good on pasta and chicken.

This is a tasty soup (super dilly), but it is a lot of work. We didn't get enough pay off.
