    Tastes fantastic! My modifications included using "Better than Boullion" vegetable base (subtracts 37 per serving) to make it vegetarian and blending it breifly with an immersion blender for a thicker base. (you need to edit your directions to say when to put in the carrots!) - 3/30/08

    I really liked this. Not bad for beets. ;) It is perfect for making as a batch and then taking to work as a healthy lunch, paired with crackers and some fruit for dessert. - 12/10/07
