Puree of Turnip Soup

Puree of Turnip Soup

A comforting holistic soup made from the delicious yet often forgotten turnip.

2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, minced
3-4 turnips (about 1 pound), chopped into 1” pieces
1 medium sweet potato (about ½ pound), peeled and chopped into 1” pieces
2½ cup vegetable broth
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
½ teaspoon black pepper

Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Melt the coconut oil, and add the onions and garlic. Sauté for 3-5 minutes or until onions begin to turn translucent.

Add the turnips and the sweet potato and sauté for 2 minutes longer. Pour in the vegetable broth and almond milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until turnips and potatoes are tender.

Transfer soup contents to a blender, and puree until completely smooth (blend in a couple small batches, if necessary). Pour soup back into pot and reduce at a low simmer for 5 minutes longer. Add salt to taste and black pepper.

    [...] A half hour passed. The smell of savory swelled. And finally, there it was: Turnip Soup. [...]

    Julie, this actually looks really good. Very simple and elegant. I’m already thinking of what spices could go with this.

    I just made this soup and it is delicious. The sweet potatoes really pair well with the turnips. I added some good olive oil at the end to finish the soup and some maple syrup to add a touch of sweetness and flavor. Lots of black pepper and bam! delicious soup. Creamy and satisfying with no cream! thanks!
