    This was good and we even left out the cream. It made a whole lot so consider cutting down the portions if you are not making it for a family. Definitely needs some good bread to go with the meal to help you fill up...

    This is a nice, thick, creamy carrot soup. It would make a great first-course for a dinner party. I don't know that I will make it again as a weeknight meal, but I will save the recipe.

    This is a good, basic carrot soup. It had a bit too much pepper flavor for me. I'd probably reduce the pepper next time. I didn't have cream, but milk worked just fine.

    This recipe was so easy and tasty! It was very creamy and thick! I will definitely make this recipe again! Next time I make it, I think I would add some fresh sage to the mixture when I add the spices.

    This was so yummy - tasted like a soup from a fine dining restaurant! Amazing that it's so creamy with only 2TB cream. Easy to make and reheats well!

    I really like this creamy soup. It was super easy to prepare, although I made a few changes. I roasted the carrots and vidalia onion, sprinkling the veggies with thyme, salt and olive oil. Once done, I blended the veggies with the chicken broth and heavy cream. I love the way the roasted flavor comes through in the dreamy soup. I will definitely make this again.

    This soup was delicious! I used skim milk instead of heavy cream, since that's all I had, and used an immersion blender to puree, rather than a food processor or regular blender. I think that made it a bit thicker, which was great for my husband, who loved it!

    Was good, but not spectacular. Couldn't really taste the ginger, I added more but still not enough. Maybe using fresh ginger would have been better. I probably won't make this again.

    My husband absolutely loved this soup! I would make this again.

    The whole family really enjoyed this soup, including the toddler. Only three stars because on it's own this soup is only a good, solid recipe. But it's such a good base recipe to tweak as you want and take it to your five star version.

    Simple and delicious. Perfect for a dinner party so you don't over extend yourself, but no one would know!

    Very good, though I made some changes....Added parsnips just because I had them. I also added chives before I blended it, a bit of crushed red pepper, a very little bit of cumin, and allspice. Really added to the flavor! I used 2% milk instead of cream. We loved it! Very filling, and healthy. Would definitely make again.

    Has potential, but really not very good. The earthy carrot taste is overpowering. I would recommend baby carrots next time. I added, butter, brown sugar, and nonfat yogurt and it's now edible, but not worth repeating..

    This soup did taste very creamy. It was nice and thick. Next time I will add more ginger and maybe some nutmeg to boost the flavor. But it was a very delicious soup!

    I love this recipe. It is very simple. My family is now vegan so I use vegetable broth and don´t add cream. Everybody loves it!

    I'm new to cooking but I've re-read this recipe over and over and I did everything (except I used milk rather than heavy cream). I thought it tasted like smashed carrots. I don't see what everyone was raving about. I've had great carrot soup in restaurants so I tried this. I even tried adding 1/4 C fat free sour cream. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't delicious.
