"Really love the ease of ingredients and putting it all together, best part though is how delicious this is. Have made this numerous times now and it will always be my go-to carrot soup recipe. Really so inexpensive too make also, always love a deal. 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."
