    I really wanted to like this one. I did enjoy the first couple of bites, having never tasted Carrot soup before the flavor was interesting. But after the first couple of bites the onion got to be overwhelming. I didn't use a full onion and even some out during the last couple of hours of cooking but it was still too much. The last of the orange juice was very mild.<br/><br/>I won't be making this again. The flavor was just not to my taste.

    This was easy and tasty. I made some modifications that included: frying the onion in a little butter with some fresh dill and then adding to the crockpot along with the other ingredients. This softens the taste of the onion. I also substituted I cup of the stock with a 1/2 cup of water and a 1/2 cup of white wine. When serving, I swirled some plain yogurt in each bowl along some chopped fresh dill-- both added color and a nice fresh flavor. Dill works very well with carrots, particulalry when it is fresh.

    This is a surprisingly good soup. I am not wild about carrot soup ever -- and the family and I are wild about this!!! I've made it 3 times in the last month and my sweetie has asked me to make double batches. The orange juice is really important (though I once subbed tangerine juice which was great). I also added dried orange peel into the pot (it gets blended so don't worry about the consistency). Instead of cream, I used a cup of plain yogurt -- very yummy, less calories, more tangy. I also used more ginger (2x or 3x as much), a few stalks of celery, and garlic. Dress it up at the end with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove or allspice (or combos), and add some of those to the soup as well (after the blending, near the end). I also serve it with a dollop of yogurt. Such a good winter soup -- a new regular with lots of flavor and lots of health.
