Root Vegetable Soup
This past week I made a hearty, healthy pureed root vegetable soup. I used a mixture of celery root, sweet potato, golden beet, potato, parsnip, sunchoke and white onion. There is a turnip and a crookneck squash in the photo but I did not end up using them. After cooking all the veg, they were put into a blender and pureed with a bit of the vegetable stock to thin it out. The texture was silky smooth and the flavors were an interesting combination of all the vegetables used. This meal was completely vegetarian and full of vegetable goodness. Several of the vegetables used have a natural sweetness to them which contributed to the soft round flavors. Serve with some great bread and you have an easy, low calorie nutrient packed meal.
