Creamy Spicy Carrot Soup

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Cheryl T-Z

Rich and creamy, with a great flavor and a bright color: very pretty *and* very tasty. For a still-tasty, more-healthy version, skip the butter and the initial sauté of onion and potato entirely, replace the heavy cream with nonfat milk or soy/rice milk, and omit the soy sauce.

we put the spices in directly to give it an even stronger taste. This soup turned out rich and filled well but it was a perfect comfort food and i loved the corrot flavour as it just fits for easter! Thank you!
