Carrot Dill Soup

Created by Chuck,


This rich gourmet soup is perfect for a first course when you need to impress your guests. I had this at UCLA's Conference Center, and convinced the chef to give me the recipe.

I haven't even bothered to make this- that much cream, sour cream AND milk makes this recipe seem pretty amateur and if you're going to use a shop-bought soup base you should be ashamed of yourself; something that is home-made should not contain "Disodium Inosinate and Guanylate'; if you're a genuinely passionate cook you shouldn't even have that kind of crap in your cupboards because you should know how to get the best flavour out of the natural ingredients you're using. Same goes for seasoning mixes- these are only used by people who don't understand how to use herbs and spices themselves. To use bought-in ingredients like that is dishonest and lazy. Poor.
