Summer Potato and Carrot Soup

Submitted by: JENTUKE

Introduction

This soup can be whipped up in the time it takes to boil potatoes. It is a soup with substance and yet is light enough for a hot summer night. Serve hot or chilled like a vichyssoise.

  • We loved this but as I have heart problems I am not allowed butter so I missed it out - it still tasted delicious! - 9/7/09

  • How much water (broth) are you adding to the blender? This sounds delicious... It must look like a cream soup... I looked up shallots (onions)... The shallot is a member of the lily family and closely related to the onion. Their small bulbs usually sport a papery, reddish-brown skin and a white in - 9/1/09
