I made a pan of SOOP that is loosely based on a recipe I saw here.
So here is my recipe for Carrot, Potato and Turnip Soup
2 tbsp butter/marg or oil
2 medium onions, finely chopped
4 large carrots, finely diced
1 medium turnip/rutabaga/swede around 1 1/2 to 2lbs in weight finely diced*
6 medium potatoes finely diced
1 package dry onion soup mix
4 litre water
Couple tablespoons chopped fresh parsley; optional
salt and ground black pepper to taste.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add onions and cook over a medium heat for a couple of minutes. Add the vegetables and continue cooking over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add onion soup mix and water. Bring to boil and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, remove half the vegetables. Blend what is left in the pan until smooth. Add the reserved vegetables back into the pan, along with the parsley, if using. Season to taste, reheat, serve and enjoy!!
* People call rutabaga, turnip and swede by different name's. This is the type of vegetable I used we call it a rutabaga in Canada:
And finally in the hopes of it one day being above freezing I am again posting a Summer type video just in case Mother Nature decides to read my blog and decides to take pity on me!!!
