Variation
Add a teaspoon of grated lemon peel for a Greek touch.
Success
Leaving the pieces of carrots big enough for a fork keeps them fresh tasting, not mushy. Be sure to offer a fork when serving this hearty soup.
Special Touch
Top each serving with a spoonful of pesto for an added boost of flavor.
