Let's start by saying that I don't like turnips, but I had some that needed to be used, so I tried this soup recipe. It was surprisingly good, rather like a light potato soup. I would recommend this to anyone who likes turnips. It's also very easy.
Very lovely. I think it tasted wonderful. I put bacon and dried parsley on it. I think it's especially good since I'm trying to diet, and it's only 86 calories (that is, if the nutritional facts on the left are correct)
I am the only one in my family that likes trunips so I was a little surprised that my family liked it enough to have a 2nd bowl. It is easy to prepare and I used the suggested topping ingredients, croutons, crumbled bacon and parsley. My soup didn't thicken like I thought it would so next time I would add a little more flour.
