      Just home from a trip to Ireland, and wanted to replicate a carrot-anise soup we enjoyed at La Cave, a French wine bar in Dublin. This is pretty close, although I used half milk/half veg stock for the liquid. Yummers!

      DH was the only hold out on this yummy soup (he is anti-sweet except in desserts). The best part was that my 14 yr. old DS, who only seems to eat meat or bread these days, enjoyed a bowlful. Reviewer Parsley is right...this is a great kid's soup. I made as directed, using fresh vegetable stock. Think this would be a wonderful starter for Thanksgiving dinner or any meal you want to kick off with a twist.

      I just got home from a road trip tonight and wanted something after restaurant fare for 4 days. This fit what I was looking for perfectly, it's light of the tummy and wonderful on the taste buds. I stopped at the organic market coming home and my purchases included some great looking carrots and dehydrated veggie stock, how fortuitous. As I'm a long standing fan of anise I was pretty sure that I was going to like this soup. I was wrong, I didn't like it, I just loved it. I loved it totally, happily and whole heartedly. I used roasted garlic puree and skipped the white pepper because a taste before adding it told me that it was perfection in orange at that point and why would I mess with perfection?

      Yummy, even without the bay leaves and chives! (I didn't have any) I substituted some of the contents of a fennel tea bag for the star anise (again, I didn't have it--don't worry, it's just fennel seeds in a tea bag) and it was still good. Thanks for a great (and adaptable) recipe!

      Very nice and smooth without cream or potatoes in it. I used olive oil instead of butter (and veggie stock (it makes the recipe vegan and 0% colesterol). I didn't use any grind star anise so I just used 3 whole star anise. It turned out very good. I'll repeat for sure

      Absolutely comforting and delicious - just as described. The star anise gives this soup a wonderfully distinct yet delicate flavor. The texture is smooth and creamy; you'd think milk or cream was added. I felt the amount of star anise in the recipe is perfect; I didn't add any extra. I used veggie stock. I did garnish each with a star. My children adored this soup. I'll make this often this winter...and note to self: double the recipe! Thanx for posting this.
