Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 1 hr 30 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 2 turnips
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 parsnips
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken stock
  • olive oil to taste
  • kosher salt to taste
  • scallions, sour cream, or parmesan optional garnish

Instructions
 

  • Peel and chop all your vegetables into chunks. Peel your garlic and trim off the ends. Get rid of any seeds or bits you don't want to eat.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Put all your vegetables on a baking sheet, coat with some olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.
  • Roast your vegetables for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool down just a little bit.
  • Combine your vegetables with all your other ingredients. Blend your soup using the machine of your choice.
  • Serve immediately, garnishing with chopped scallions, chives, parmesan, or any other preferred topping.

Notes

  • Any root vegetables would be good in this soup. Some other contenders are rutabaga, celeriac or celery root, beets, and potatoes.
  • A splash of heavy cream before blending would also add more richness to what truly is a super healthy soup.
  • This soup is best served warm, but it also is great at room temp.
  • Store in the fridge for 4-5 days.
  • This soup freezes beautifully, so make extra for those days when you don't feel like cooking.
