Reviews for Rice and Carrot Soup
"This recipe is outstanding. I have already made it at least five times. It is definitely a favorite of mine."
"Very tasty and easy. Thanks for sharing!"
"We loved it! I put in a salt substitute (similar to Mrs. Dash) in place of the salt and pepper. I will definitely make this again the same way."
"I made this for lunches and it was awesome. I am looking forward to trying a lower fat version... possibly with fat free half and half instead of the heavy cream."
"I made this for the frist time back in Oct. My daughter loved it. I lost the book that it was in and have been looking for it. She has been asking for me to make it again so now I have it again and will be making it all the time."
