Chicken and Vegetable Soup

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Zsuzsa

This is a recipe that my daughter brought home one year from her Home Economics class at school and has been a family favourite ever since. It is best made the day before, so that all the flavours have a chance to combine. The parsley may be omitted.

Must say this is probably the first time I've ever made a soup with a vegetable combo that included turnip, rutabaga (first time I'd ever heard it referred to as a swede, but then . . .) & parsnip ~ Very, very nice! Pretty much followed the recipe on down, & we were wonderfully satisfied with the results, as was a neighbor couple! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag]
