  3. Oh I love carrot soup and this sounds delicious. I will have to give your recipe a try

  5. This soup sounds delicious, and the gadget seems very clever - saving on washing up is always top of my list!

  6. Carrot soup is such a good frugal one to make. I love the combination of carrot and coriander - I tend to alternate between that and carrot with cumin

  7. Whoa, is anything thinking of being on a diet at this time of year?!? That said, everyone will jump on the bandwagon in the new year. Thermocook makes life so easy, doesn't it?

  29. I've never tried carrot soup before, I really need to get better at making soup x

  30. Oh wow, this soup sounds absolutely delicious. Not sure I'd purchase the gadget purely because the cost seems a little high for the amount of use I'd get out of it, I just tend to do my soups in the slow cooker, but I really think it would be a great gadget for those that like to enjoy soup often xxx
