Good soup. I did have a few unexpected setbacks however. I halved the soup, chopped the rutabaga, and sliced the peppers. I should have diced the rutabaga - the pieces were too big, same goes for the peppers. I also needed another 1.5 cups of stock to thin it out. Because my rutabaga pieces were quite large I ended up pureeing the soup then adding the extra stock to thin it down. The flavor of my soup in mild and did need the salt. In the end, my soup was good.
