    I added Quinoa which made this soup much heartier and with more texture. I felt it needed lots of seasoning also.

      Just wanted to let you know that I am having trouble commenting to your site. (I think I am getting hung up in your spam filter).

        Me too Mary. I have left comments on prior weeks and thought you just had to “approve them” or such but I do not see them ever showing up. Still enjoying your posts very much!

    It’s what’s for dinner when you think that there’s nothing for dinner.

      Alice – just wanted to let you know I left a comment, but I think I am getting hung up in your spam filter. (WordPress has recently declared war on me, I think…)

        OMG Cher, nearly every comment for the past several weeks of yours was in the spam folder!! I’m sorry I didn’t notice… there are many others that wound up there too… gosh. I usually notice if there is anything there since I hardly get any spam at all… oi. Good luck with wordpress, I will keep a closer eye on the spam folder now – but as far as my blog goes, you shouldn’t be going to spam anymore! : )

    It was more like the “whatever-was-in-the-refrigerator” soup…

    I added some mild Italian sausages and it was DELISH!

    I disappear for four months and cannot even post this week’s recipe? Bad Adriana!

    This post includes three great summer sides: the corn pancakes, the honey-lime beet salad, and the cafe-style carrot salad. Would love to hear which of the three was your favorite and why.

    Have a great Friday!

    We loved it! Yum yum yum!

    Really surprised at how good the seasoning was in this soup.

    Just OK for me:

    This was a quick and easy recipe to prepare.

    I made a winter squash version. Delicious!

    Simple and great. Definitely how I want to eat my carrots from now on.

    I have loved every one of Dorie’s soup recipes (or non-recipes) so far. This one was another hit!

  15. ComeUndone October 19, 2012 at 11:15 AM #

    The soup is not particularly exciting but adding some herb dumplings (dill & sage) totally transformed it! I highly recommend this hearty variation.

  16. KarenP October 19, 2012 at 11:30 AM #

    A nice way to use up some leftover veggies.

  17. AmyA October 19, 2012 at 11:49 AM #

    Ho-hum turned to YUM! after a couple days in the fridge (carrot + ginger version)
