A comforting holistic soup made from the delicious yet often forgotten turnip.
For the Soup
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
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
