This is a lovely soup to show off in a white bowl – the color is shockingly orange. We like to serve this one to guests. They often “ooh” and “ahh” over the color, then they do the same about the flavor. The curry spices are noticeable, but not too intense. They’re just mild enough to take the flavor beyond the ordinary. Not that there’s anything ordinary about a soup made from 2 lbs of carrots. So with a hint of curry in the background, the flavor of the slow-cooked carrots shines through. Your taste buds will be amazed at how good a deep carrot flavor can be. Slow Cooker Curry Carrot Soup is low in calories too, making it a wonderful meal-starter.
