This was a very tasty, smooth and velvety soup! I really liked the combination of carrot, potato and garlic! Very flavourful and yummy! The only thing Id change next time, would be to reduce the amount of garlic used as I felt it was a little overpowering. I would have liked this even better if I could have been able to taste the rest of the ingredients more. Overall though I really enjoyed this! Made and reviewed for Everyday Is A Holiday Tag Game Octobre 09.
