I wasn't very impressed with this recipe at all...the flavor was strange with a bitter aftertaste that wasn't very pleasant. Perhaps it was because it called for a whole tablespoon of curry powder? Also as is the recipe calls for no salt or pepper so I added about 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1/8 tsp. of ground black pepper for more flavor. The one good thing about this recipe is how quick and easy it is to make. Even so I wouldn't make it again. Thanks for sharing though! Read More

I had a bunch of carrots so looked for a good recipe. This was great! Simple and delicious. I read the reviews and, like others, added another T curry. I also added 2 cloves garlic with the onion, and saved some of the cooked carrots to add chunks to the puree mixture. I also added about 1/4 t salt. I garnished it with sour cream the first time, then with plain yogurt and some fresh cut cilantro. Read More

I didn't think this recipe was too bad but my husband didnt care for it at all. It was very thick so I might add more broth next time and use chicken broth instead of vegetable. Read More

As a lover of carrots and curry I couldn't wait to try this recipe. I thought it was delicious. I used 3(14oz) cans of chicken broth additional curry but did not add any water. I simplified the puree step by using a stick blender into the pot. JAH Texas Read More

We love this recipe. It is even better reheated. I add more onion and more curry than is suggested to make it spicier. It is nice served with caramelized onions, sour cream, and/or croutons. Read More

Great flavor. I used chicken broth to make it a little richer. I ended up using about 5 cups total to get the right consistency. At the end I added half a block of crumbled firm tofu to add protein. Next time I'll probably only puree half of it so it will be chunkier. Read More

We did not like this at all. I actually threw most of it out. And it sounded so good when I read the recipe. Read More
