      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?
