    I loved it, my son added cinnamon to his and thought that made it tastier. I also added fresh ginger. Will definitely make again.

    Yummy! I had dried rosemary but no thyme. I put in some dried Italian seasoning instead (mixed herbs). Instead of hot sauce I used chilli flakes. Delicious combination of sweet and peppery! And I added one small glass of water mixed with a tablespoon of plain flour at the end to thicken it a little. Perfect consistency. Will make again.

    The soup turned out to be nice. The vegetables had to cook longer than it was written in the recipe.

    I have made this soup time after time and it is always my go to soup, as the ingredients are always in my refrigerator. The taste is excellent and no added dairy or additives. All from scratch is the best with homemade chicken stock. Thanks Yummly.!

    I puree the bacon with the vegetables in the vitamix. Very tasty, will make again.

    Halved the recipe and used garlic powder and dried rosemary, thyme, and basil while cooking the carrots and onion. Very yummy!

    Not my favorite to be honest. The rosemary was overpowering.

    Easy to prepare. Frying the carrots and onions definitely adds a lot to the flavor. Only had a bit of rosemary, but it does the trick :) Will make again with thyme as well.

    This was delicious - one of the best soups I’ve had! Made some small adjustments. Added an extra cup of broth because it was a little too thick (and I like thick soups). Used 2 tbsp bacon fat + 1 tbsp butter + 1.5 tsp olive oil in place of the 3 tbsp oil. Added some garlic powder and used 1 tsp each dried rosemary and thyme. I cooked the veggies for about 30 minutes and they had nice color but the carrots weren’t quite tender so I added the broth and simmered until the carrots were softened then blended everything together. I will be making this again!
    great soup - kids loved it when it was paired with cauliflower bread

    Healthy and easy to make.. I added a small potato and it was delish. The bacon strips took this soup to a divine level. Definitively will make it again.

    Excellent—didn’t use bacon and used sriracha as hot sauce

    Loved it! I didn't have any onions on hand unfortunately, which would have definitely added to it, but even without it this was great! Added a bit more garlic, lots of thyme and the turkey bacon definitely added the smokiness. This was an awesome and simple recipe. Had a ton of carrots that I was trying to get rid of and this recipe NAILED it. A win!
