Golden Carrot Soup

"This is a great-tasting soup to make on a chilly day," observes Aline Winje of Slocan, British Columbia. "It's easy to fix too." The rich-colored soup has a mild chicken flavor with just a hint of garlic.

    Very good. I used vegetable boullion to make it vegetarian. I also used an immersion blender so that I did not have to dirty another container.

    This is so yummy! I'll be making this again and again. I've used rice and quinoa and it tastes great either way.

    I just made this for my husband and I. It was an easy recipe and I had all the ingredients on hand. He loved it so much he said "Double or triple the recipe next time. I could eat two or three bowls of this!!!.... I would like to have it for my lunches during the week too!"
