    Wonderful!! I cut down on the fat by reducing the butter to 1 Tbl, and using fat-free half-and-half instead of heavy whipping cream. Didn't affect the taste at all! Note that 10 carrots is the same as 4 cups whole baby carrots (chop before adding). I also used 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/8 tsp. pepper - would do that again. Be sure and puree the soup after cooking, or carrots will be chunky. Thanks for the recipe!  -  27 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This soup is surprisingly good! I am not even that fond of carrots. The one thing I highly recommend is making it into a puree. I tried it both ways and it is far better if you whip it all up in the blender. Plus it's a beautiful orange color!  -  11 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a wonderful recipe! I used the ingredients that I had on hand, which means that I used reduced sodium chicken broth (and I would again) and half and half instead of whipping cream. I also didn't have any marjoram or dill weed, but didn't miss it at all. I also pureed the soup prior to adding the corn starch and half and half. I would definitely make this again!  -  14 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
