The oven roasting really enhances the flavor of the vegetables. We loved it and I will definitely make it again. Can't wait to have the leftovers tonight.

This was very easy to make, and tasted very good. A great way to use up carrots and sweet potatoes from in the fridge! Took it to a pot lock dinner and it was well received.

My family ate it, but we have had much better solo vegetable soups. Will not make this again.

The soup was great! I will make it again however, I will use 1tbsp less Oil, found the veggies had a bit to much oil on them.

I added a tsp of lemon juice and 1/4 tsp nutmeg & some cinnamon to punch it up a bit. It was excellent

The entire family enjoyed this soup. Creamy and flavor full. The carrots were not overpowering. The kids especially enjoyed it. It is going on my holiday table for sure.
