      This soup is wonderful! I love carrot soup and this was better than any I have had. The red pepper adds a little zip without making it hot. I used half and half instead of the milk because I had some in the refigerator. I will definately be making this often.

      This is a pretty good soup recipe. I would agree with a couple of the other reviewers, that is a lot of sesame oil, so I cut it in half, and it was still a bit strong. I also, doubled the garlc, reduced the peanut butter to 1 tablespoon, and also added a bit of marsala wine. IMPORTANT: if you let this boil once the milk is in it it will curdle, so make sure you watch that. :)

      Delicious! I did everything exactly as you instructed and it turned out great. We didn't use the garnish, however, because we're watching the calories but the soup didn't really need it. We also baked a couple of potatoes and cut them into cubes and added a few chunks into the soup to fill us up quicker. The only thing that would make the recipe better was to have more of an exact measurement for the ginger. Thanks Mille for an easy, nutritious soup!
