This recipe is great! I added an extra cup of vegetable stock, used sweet potato instead of golden potatoes, and added a pinch of cumin. I didn't have fresh ginger, so I used ground ginger instead. Gives a massive ginger kick; but absolutely delicious.


I made this but doubled up all the seasoning because I like a lot of flavour and it was beautiful! :D I forgot the green onion though, I'll have to remember that next time. Thank you very much for the recipe! :D


I actually didn't use any turmeric, ginger, salt or pepper, but it was still flavourful and creamy and amazing! I guess I just wasn't in the mood for a spicy soup today. I'll try it spicy when the weather gets cold again!


This recipe is absolutely wonderful. I had a ton of homegrown carrots sitting around so I decided to try this. I used a lot of ginger, and also threw in a pinch of cumin. I definitely recommend it.


I used an immersion blender, and this had a great texture.  I had no fresh ginger, so I used ground, but upped the spice a little by adding some cloves and cayenne instead of white pepper.  This was good in Texas in May, so I could see how it could be great in winter.


The best carrot soup I've made so far. When blended it becomes velvety and delectable. I added a large parsnip into the mix, and some ground coriander. Served with fresh home-made buns... mm, perfect for a chilly autumn day.
