Surprise Winter Vegetable Soup Recipe
Turnips or rutabagas are the makings of an elegant soup.
1 cup peeled and diced turnips or rutabagas
2 1/2 cups chicken broth or vegetable stock
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon or mint marigold, or other fresh herb of choice, or 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried herbs
1/2 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground white pepper, to taste
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Cook turnips or rutabagas in broth or vegetable stock until soft. Allow broth to cool and then puree in blender or food processor. In medium-size, heavy saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly — do not let brown. Add blended vegetables and broth, mixing well. Stir in herbs and cream and season with salt and pepper. Simmer until completely hot, stirring often. Serve topped with fresh parsley.
