Cream of Carrot Soup

Cream of Carrot Soup created by Boomette

I made this with fat-free half & half to lighten it up a bit. I couldn't tell from the original recipe whether to simmer the carrots covered or uncovered - doing it covered made a fairly thin soup. If you want a thicker soup, I'd imagine leaving it uncovered would help. From The Joy of Cooking.

    I made this soup with chicken stock reduced-sodium. I used turmeric instead of curry powder. I used half and half cream. This soup has a great taste without being too sweet. Thanks Mayness :) Made for PAC spring 2011
