I used the carrot tops along with two of my potatoes, a couple small carrots, chives, garlic, parsley, some of my soup base paste (from my $10. allowance) to make magical Christmas soup. All of the ingredients above were added to the water I used to blanch my meager supply of beets and the water I used to blanch the carrots. After cooling, the soup seems to magically separate into Christmas color layers. I'm just sayin'
