This is a wonderful recipe. I substituted apple juice for the orange juice and omitted the garlic and red peppers. I also used water instead of the broth and it was still fabulous!

Very good! This is the perfect food - low cal, low fat and low carb. I'm also on a prescribed low protein diet and this fits right in. We didn't puree the carrots - the soup would have been like baby food if we had. It's a bit on the spicy side, so if you don't like your food hot, cut back a little on the white pepper. The serving size is 1 cup if the recipe is to make 6 servings. However, the stated serving size is 309g which is 1 1/3 cups - important to know for those with type 1 diabetes.
