dried dill weed
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
heavy whipping cream
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!
Although this soup smelled fanstatic and looked beautiful, my husband and I were underwhelmed by its flavor. I used rather large "pinches" of the seasonings, but the soup still tasted rather bland. If I had ordered it in a restaurant, I wouldn't have been disappointed, but neither would I have been eager to order it again. If you like subtly flavored food then definitely give this recipe a try, but if you prefer more robust flavors (as I do) you may want to give this recipe a miss.
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!
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!
Wow! I can't get enough of this soup! The subtle blend of flavors is perfect. It's a great accompaniment to quiches, sandwiches, or hearty salads. I use vegetable broth instead of chicken, and half & half instead of cream. Yum!
I made this soup last year and my family loved it. Let's just say, my family doesn't do soups. Especially not carrot, but they loved this one! Caught me by suprise how easy it was and how great it tasted. Highly recommend it. Thanks for sharing it. Linda.
I made this soup because I had tons of carrots and needed a way to use them up fast. I had never had carrot soup before. I was very suprised that everyone loved it..including two picky toddlers! I prepared the ingredients just as written then I smoothed it out with an emulsion blender and added some crumbled crisp-cooked bacon on the top. I will be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!
A thick, rich, creamy DELICIOUS soup.
We really enjoyed it for dinner last night. And I have been making soup for 2 years now every Wednesday and this is one of the best I've made.
One thing tho ---use a food processor to slice the carrots --I did mine by hand & it took forever to do.
