Reviews for Curried Carrot Soup
"A good, easy soup with some great warmth (not spiciness) thanks to the curry and ginger. Blend the soup well to get the best result. I suggest adding a bit of salt to the finished dish. You could also add some cooked chicken or tofu to the soup for more protein and/or to satisfy meat-eaters. Very easy to customize!"
