Description

This recipe was submitted by Sally Henkel in the 2012 We ♥ Local Food Savory Carrot Recipe Competition. Sally says, Not only is this a vegan soup, but it's also great for winter days. The carrot and ginger medley create a savory soup, loaded with flavor. I love making this for friends and family dinner.
