Reviews for Creamy Carrot Soup
"Oh, yummy! I substituted 1 tsp. onion powder, boiled the veggies in water. Used the chicken broth while pureeing & skipped the rosemary. I increased the ginger to 3 1/2 tsps. for better flavor."
"A friend made this on Sunday- I couldn't stop eating it. I made it and brought it to work to share with co-workers who all loved it. I increased ginger using fresh grated ginger root, and lightened it by using half & half and 1% milk. It was still awesome and just a little better for my heart!"
"This is a wonderful recipe! I don't care for rosemary so I left that out. I added a light sprinkling of ground cinnamon to the top right before serving to give it a little extra something. Yummy!!"
"very thick & rich. wonderful taste & lovely aroma while cooking."
"This soup was very rich. I recommend a small serving. Plan on serving only to accompany the main course."
"This is my family's favorite soup. At the first hint of a chill in the air they all start begging me for it. Even those not crazy about carrots will love it."
"Add crumbled bacon just before serving.Delicious soup."
"a teaspoon of sherry adds a nice touch"
