This has turned out a lot better than I expected. I thought it was going to be too plain and instead I ended up having two big servings of it and basically licked the bowl! Let me tell you, it was much much better than my last attempt at carrot soup. Thank you!
Simple, easy and tasty. Perfect soup for a quick meal. Great for me at the moment with my jaw wired between surgeries
What a VERY TASTY soup! I made it for dinner tonight and enjoyed it very much! Its so easy peasy to make, with no fuss at all and tastes very yummy. The garlic makes a wonderful addition to the carrots sweetness and the amount used was perfect. I used a medium sized onion and threw in two chopped up spring onions, which needed to be used up. Did not have any parsley, so just served the soup without garnish and I dont think anyone missed it. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful warming soup recipe with us, Sara!
