This recipe is adapted from "The Slow Cooker Cookbook". You can also make a non-vegetarian version of this dish by adding some fried chopped bacon or pancetta to the pot with the vegetables.

This was OK, but not great. I loved the idea though, but in practice this chunky soup has a fairly sour taste (probably thanks to the turnip & swede), but nothing to tone the sourness down (cream for example). Great use of winter vegetables, but not exactly fabulous. Edit : Had seconds after re-heating it, and added bacon. The recipe improved ten-fold.
