This is a really lovely tasting soup :) More importantly its dead simple to make, even for a cooking simpleton like me, yesterday made a complete hash of the healthy coleslaw recipe due to me trying to use a smoothie maker as a blender (came out as puree :( )

Very nice and I also added more carrots and a potato as I found the consistency too thin for my taste

I've made this a few times with great success every time. It's simple and easy to follow and doesn't matter too much if you have less carrot or more of something else than specified. I've even substituted parsnip.

Having just made this for the first time i'm currently sat with the bowl on my lap enjoying! As everyone else has said, it was easy to make and tastes great. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, threw in a couple of celery sticks as i love the flavour it gives soups, and also added some dried chilli (i used scotch bonnets, but chilli flakes would do the same thing) to heat it up a little. Really tasty and a great quick option.

does anyone how big the potato needs to be?

Yummy, made this three times now, love the flavour. Added another half potato to make it slightly thicker as its quite runny. But a wonderful tasting soup.

Great flavor and easy to cook.

Lovely, fresh and very economical too! Add half a teaspoon of Tumeric for a more vibrant carrot colour, additional health benefits too! Another variation is to add a tablespoon of honey before whizzing in the mixer, this brings out the natural sweetness of the carrots without making it "sweet".
