Really love the ease of ingredients and putting it all together. The best part is eating it though, of course. Might still try and jazz it up a little bit but really perfect as is too Thank-you Robyn!

Awesome! My family loved it (7yr old son, 11yr old daughter, hubby and I). Took some to work for everyone to try and they all gave it 5 stars! My hubby is a big hunter and he said he would love to have this in his thermos on his all day hunts! Thanks Robyn for the great recipe!

Well balanced combination of flavors that highlights carrots without overwhelming the taste buds. It pairs nicely with a light dinner, or stands alone for lunch - and so easy to make. This will certainly be a repeat recipe in our house.

Wonderful! My young children liked it as well as my husband (who generally isn't much of a soup person). Will definitely make again.
