i added a lg. clove garlic,only one lg. carrot(more and you would have tasted only carrot) used milk instead of cream, add liquid with caution as there is too much liquid, also used 1 medium onion

Velvet-smooth it is! Loved the the texture. This a comforting, tummy-warming soup. I made it just as written, but added a little garlic and garnished with green onions. I will make this again for sure. Thanx for a great soup recipe.
