Carrot Apple Soup Recipe

"On a brisk fall day, nothing is more appealing than a steaming bowl of this soup," says field editor Ruby Williams of Bogalusa, Louisiana. "Even though it's lower in fat, it still has old-time goodness."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:7 servings


  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat margarine
  • 8 medium carrots, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
