Recipe by Chouny

Another comforting soup. A great way to cook with turnip; a vegetable that not everyone likes, but will not be noticed. Absolutely delicious.

Lovely, lovely soup! I did use more garlic and left out the salt (for me)...DH adds his own. This is a very comforting soup. I used my hand blender to puree....but left enough chunks to give it some texture. I served this with a salad. Thank you, Chouny for sharing!
