  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over low heat. When the butter begins to foam, add the onion; cook until the onion begins to turn translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the chicken broth, carrots, potatoes, herbes de Provence, thyme, and bay leaf; season with salt and pepper. Raise heat to medium-high and bring to a boil; reduce heat again to low and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway. Securing the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, start to blend using a few quick pulses before allowing to blend continually; puree in batches until smooth. Divide into eight soup bowls; garnish each portion with about 1/2 tablespoon heavy cream and a sprig of parsley.

I followed the recipe very closely but it just wasn't good. I had to add a lot of spices to make it taste like anything. I was quite disappointed with it.

Love the soup! I was looking for a good potatoe, carrot soup recipe and I found it. I did not add all the herbs, since I didnt have them on hand. I also did not add the heavy cream, and this ...

This was excellent! Good use for leftover 5 lb bag of organic carrots. I too left out the cream to decrease fat and used sweet potato. Appropriate for simple lunch or supper or served in my f...

Good recipe and really easy to make. I had to add a lot of white pepper to get it to a flavor we were happy with (about 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon). I also added some paprika for richer color and more...

Simple, quick and yummy! I've made this a couple of times now and it disappears within minutes.

Delicious and creamy. I think I will substitute some of the cream with milk, though, as the saturated fat content must have been great. 2 cups of cream!
