This is great soup. The first time I made it I used half and half and it was great. The second time I made it I used 1% milk and it was still good. If I were making this for a group of people I would use the half and half but just for me 1% works just fine (in an attemp to cut down on fat). Read More

I thought the soup was average. I scooped a spoonful of sour cream into each bowl and that helped kick up the taste a little bit. Read More

It's so easy! I kicked it up a notch by using freshly grated ginger and nearly 1/4 cup.... I like it spicy! I also switched the 1/2 and 1/2 to heavy cream. I serve it with a dollop of creme fraiche or sour cream. Everyone raves over this. Read More

This is a wonderful recipe. I used about 1/2 cup Ornage Juice and fat free half and half. Also used 4 teaspoons of ginger instead of 2. Wonderful recipe to be re-used over and over again. Read More

What a fantastic recipe! Because I really enjoy the flavor and spiciness of ginger I tripled the suggested. Very easy to make looks and tastes fancier than the effort put into it and my husband loved it! Easy to make easy to clean up crowd appeal...5 stars! Read More

Amazing carrot soup just what I was looking for. It doesn't get much easier than this. I used 3 cups of milk instead of 2 cups half-and-half and it still gave me a very consistent soup. I used butter instead of oil though I don't know that that made much of a difference. Just missing a little seasoning of some sort. I used fresh grated ginger and added oregano and a little parsley. I will use this recipe again and again when I don't know what to do with leftover carrots. Thank you! Read More
