Yum! This is a delicious recipe! A good hearty soup with wonderful flavor from the garlic. I added some bacon bits for even more smokey flavor. Excellent comfort food on a cold night. Thanks for the recipe!

This soup is fantastic! I added a bit more garlic, a half-teaspoon of allspice, a half-teaspoon of paprika, and either some chopped crispy bacon or Canadian bacon. I also used my immersion blender. It would go great with some homemade garlic croutons. Thank you for sharing this!

This soup is fantastic! I served it as a gravy over mashed potatoes. My DH asked me "how did you do this?". It was a hit. I added a couple of extra roasted garlic cloves (I love garlic). Thanks for the recipe!

I loved this. I keep Roasted Garlic Paste in the freezer (it thaws in minutes), and that made this recipe come together so quickly. I used my immersion blender instead of taking the soup out of the pot, so it was a bit chunkier than your photo, but still very lovely. I also found that I needed to add salt at serving, despite putting two good pinches of kosher salt while it was cooking. This is hearty & healthy and one I will make again!

This was a pretty easy soup to do. I added about 1/3 - 1/2 package of regular bacon fried and sliced up. Next time we'll add the whole package to get more bacon taste. We also added a fair bit of salt, more than I thought would be needed. My DH even said he would eat this again. I added about 1 and a half cups of chopped up carrots, I didn't have 3, just baby carrots. It tasted just fine that way. I also didn't add a full onion, just a half. Being that this was so simple and cost effective to make, it will definately enter our regular meals. It would even freeze very well.

A tasty, thick & hearty soup for a cold winter night! I had only 2 large carrots - otherwise, I followed the recipe verbatim. Next time, I'll season with salt at step 6. Thanx Sharon!
