If you're a fan of creamy soups-you must try this!! I got it from the chef at a restaurant I used to work at but I've scaled it down to make it at home. I made it for my discriminating mother-in-law and my parents who both said carrot?? and raved about it afterward. Try it-it's sweet, creamy and suprisingly, addictive!!

Excellent! We absoulutly loved this soup! It may have been the best soup I've ever had! I actually only tried carrot soup one other time about 15 yrs. ago at a restaurant in Boston and when I saw this recipe I knew it was a must try! It was better then I had even remebered. My family, too, turned their noses up when I mentioned it but devoured it when it was done. I must say I was a little hesitant to try this after that 1st reveiw but honestly- I don't how she could have been disapointed. It may not be a recipe for a beginner cook and maybe this was the case but my family found it to be an amazing, impressive soup. Healthy too! Thank you for sharing :)
sorry, but this was just not at all what I had hoped....
Yummy and very good for the eyesight no doubt! I pureed the soft carrots in a blender and kept aside a few tablespoons of the chunky ones to throw back in for texture. I made this with fat free canned milk instead of heavy cream, and sorry but I don't have any sherry. Next time I will make it with fresh dill too. This soup keeps fine for a week in the fridge, and I'd probably try freezing some portions next time. Thanks for posting this tasty, healthy soup!
