|Wash away those winter blues...|
I made a wonderful scalloped dish using all of the fore mentioned veggies the other day, and had a lot sliced veggies to use up. What could possibly be anything more soothing then a big pot of creamy soup to warm up those blues.
Root tooten soup..
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 small carrots
1/2 small head of turnip
2 large shallots chopped
2 medium sweet potatoes
4 medium king Edward, etc.potatoes sliced, diced, chopped or cubed.
2 tablespoons of flour or any other thickening agent you desire
1/2 cup white wine
Add 1-2 vegetable cubes,( bouillon as you know I make my own, so I added about 3-4 tablespoons) as it was a very big pot of cooking veggies!
Fill up your pot with cold water and season with a little salt and pepper to get the ball rolling. DO NOT DRAIN THE COOKING LIQUID!!
When you can pierce the veggies to the point of tenderness either take your emulsifier or ladle into your Cuisinart or blender until a nice puree evolves.
