Cream of Carrot Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Cindy Lynn

One of my uncles and aunts was here for what is likely to be his last visit (he has cancer and is not doing well), so I wanted to prepare a really nice dinner. The original recipe was for 4, but I modified slightly, and doubled to serve 8, serving as the first course. It originated in one of my diabetic cookbooks (uncle and aunt are both diabetic), but was a major hit with the non-diabetics as well as the diabetics. Everyone was disappointed there was none left (for thirds).

I am a soup lover and this one tasted Really Great, and we all loved it. I did puree' only half the carrots because I wanted a little crunch, but taste-wise it was truly Right On and worked wonderfully with Inez's Cheese Straws! Thanks Cindy Lynn..
