I often double this recipe and freeze half, so we can enjoy a taste of summer during the cold winter months. If I do freeze it, I omit the yogurt and stir it in after the soup's reheated. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
Robyn Larabee’s bright and creamy carrot soup is her young son’s very favorite. “He requests it often,” she writes from Lucknow, Ontario. “I like that it’s fast, easy and makes a perfect amount for the two of us when my husband is away at work.”
I first sampled this colorful carrot soup at a local Victorian tea room and wouldn't leave until I had the recipe in hand. The chef was kind enough to share it with me so I could enjoy it anytime at home.
I THOUGHT this sounded like a compatible mix of ingredients when I read the recipe for the first time - and it is delicious. It's a pretty color and makes a hearty soup to serve during the winter months.

"This is a great-tasting soup to make on a chilly day," observes Aline Winje of Slocan, British Columbia. "It's easy to fix too." The rich-colored soup has a mild chicken flavor with just a hint of garlic.
When I serve this creamy soup, people are amazed by the bright carrot color and are hooked by the deliciously different flavor. A hint of rosemary adds a nice spark to a slightly sweet soup.
