    Can't believe there's no other reviews for this! This is one of my favorite soup recipes, you can do anything with it. I almost always add rice, sometimes I puree it with the soup, other times add it in after pureeing. I always add abit of salt, and a nice amount of dill - it really perks up the carrots. Tried it with broccoli and it just wasn't as nice. Such an easy soup - made it for my husband several times while he had mono, he loved it too!
