This is great with a few small onion is plenty and use maybe do with extra carrots- a 1 1/2 lb instead- and try it w/ real cream! Used about 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated, rather than the crystalized. Very tasty- and just what I was looking for!!


This was a great soup - up to the point that I added the last two ingredients at which point it stopped being ginger carrot soup and became cream of orange juice soup. Not that I have a problem with oj - except maybe as a soup. It's still a good recipe as written but I really couldn't taste the carrot. Next time I'll skip the juice -maybe play with doubling the chicken broth and then decide if I want to add the fat-free half&half after pureeing.


I loved this recipe. I used 2 lbs of carrots and a little more stock so I would have some left over to freeze. I omitted the cinnamon, OJ and half & half as not to lose the carrot taste.
