Carrot Corn Soup is a perfect winter soup. The beautiful light in the evening and a huge bowl of the Carrot Corn Soup is what made it perfect. Now that there is a slight chill in the air, most days we have soup for supper. Carrot Corn Soup is a variation of the Corn soup. Carrot and Corn gives a very beautiful colour to the soup.
