This is excellent! I made it exactly as written, and it was very, very good. As I was eating my first bowl, I began thinking about the cinnamon and ginger combination. "I wonder what it would be like if I added a tablespoon of honey to the pot?" WOW! I loved it even more! Then I wondered how a dollop of plain yogurt might taste as a garnish. Another winning idea! No doubt about it - this recipe is a keeper!

I didn't even add salt and for some reason this turned out really salty! i solved the problem by peeling and dicing a pear and then blending that it. Overall, I liked this soup quite a bit, and a bunch of vitamins is always a nice bonus!

This was really, really good. The combo of the curry and cinnamon is perfect and I have this issue about not being able to eat carrot soup w/out ginger in again this was perfect. The house smelled divine while it bubbled away and like Kate, I left my carrots on to simmer longer than 15..more like 25. Served with a dollop of light sour cream on top with salad and biscuits. PERFECT fall dinner!
