Carrot & Dill soup

I found this great recipe off of pintrest the other day, and had to make some revisions. I changed a few things to make it healthier and I was quite impressed with the taste.  I served it to Sydney with a bit of spinach hummus mixed into it…she seemed to gobble it back. So if a 9 month old liked it, I am sure you will too!
