Made as written for the Happy Campers team of CQ4 - Coincidentally, my Best of Quest for CQ3 in 2016 was a carrot soup by Mikekey & I happily started out this yr w/a winner as well. I served your easy-fix & flavorful soup as a starter course w/Naan Bread to house guests from the US yesterday evening & this morning they were still guessing what might be its secret ingredient as they left for their flight home. It was the star of our meal, so thx for sharing the recipe w/us (A pic will post later today).
This soup was certainly very easy to make, and it is pretty too. Based on the previous reviews of the soup being very sweet, I cut the honey back to 3T (4T=1/4 cup), and it turned out that this was not a good idea--the carrot taste overwhelmed the honey taste. Dh and I enjoyed, but didn't love, the soup, and the kids didn't care for it. Normally this would make me give a 3 star rating, but, as i fiddled with the honey amount, I think it really deserves the extra star--I would like to try it again w/ the proper amount of honey.
I love this soup!!! I just finished off my second bowl...this really deserves more than 5 stars! I liked the mace (first time trying it) with the honey. I used home grown carrots, sliced, and added shredded romano on top. My kids liked this deliciously sweet soup too-my 2 year old drank it through a straw:). Thanks!
