This soup is GREAT! It is so flavorful ~ perfectly seasoned. It didn't even need the cream ~ I tried it both with & without the cream. The second time I made this soup, I used a yogurt garnish - in a squirt bottle. The yogurt was a fine alternative addition & floated as nicely as the cream. The cream & parsley are mostly for beautiful presentation. I found that the parsley sprig actually detracted from the soup's lovely smoothness, & tasted like its chlorophyll. I think a better green garnish is some thinly sliced green onions - the raw onion's enzymes actually help better digest cooked potato! I highly recommend this soup.
Made this as stated in the recipe, except that I used fresh ginger (1 tbspoon), dill (1 teaspoon) and paprika (1/2 teaspoon) as the spices... delicious, comforting fall/winter soup!
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 soup didnt need it. I added salt and pepper for seasoning and it was perfect!
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 fine china soup tureens.
Delicious soup! Very simple and easy to make, I omitted the cream because I wanted to cut on fat.
good- used vegetable stock and no cream
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 thyme, about 1/4 of a teaspoon. You may want to take the bay leaf out before blending (I forgot). Good flavor even without the cream. Thanks for sharing!
Simple, quick and yummy! I've made this a couple of times now and it disappears within minutes.
