Yum! I halved the recipe, but followed it as written except that I used baby carrots and didn't peel the potatoes. It really reminded me of the flavor of a good baked potato soup. Next time I think that I would cook the carrots a little bit before adding the potatoes because mine were still pretty crunchy. Thanks Coasty for a really nice treat.
