Introduction: Winter Root Vegetable Soup

About: I am really into creating. I don't stick to one specific "genre" when it comes to creating. So I do whatever I feel like, and if it turns out nifty, I share it!

The other day my friend gave me a whole bunch of root vegetables. I love vegetables! And I knew right away that I wanted to make a soup out of them. Now, most recipes that involve root vegetables in a soup involve making a puree out of them (yuk!). I decided that wouldn't happen to them wonderful veggie. So I made up my own soup recipe. It turned out pretty good too!

Ingredients:

4 cloves of garlic minced
2 shallots chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 carrots chopped
4 small turnips chopped
3 beets cubed
1 onion chopped
1 sweet potato cubed
1 regular potato cubed
5 cups broth (I used a veggie broth made out of Better than Bouillon)
1 cup water
Salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp oregano

Now, you can really use whatever type of veggies you have on hand. Get creative!

Step 1: In a big soup pot add the oil, garlic, and shallots and cook over medium high heat. Let it cook for about 5 minutes (or however long it takes you to start chopping veggies).

Step 2: Add in all the veggies and let it cook for about 5-10 minutes. Just long enough for them to start to soften.

Step 3: Add in the broth & water, salt & pepper, rosemary, and oregano. Once it boils, turn down the heat & simmer for about 10 more minutes.

Step 4: Serve & Enjoy!

    I once roasted the veggies and potatoes before adding them to the soup.. .roasting enhances flavor ! Like: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/roasted-winter-vegetable-soup/detail.aspx

    Your method is faster though and usually I don't have a lot of time, so I'll try your method as well.. I love soup.

    I'll have to try roasting them next time. It was my first time using all root veggies.

    This is really similar to a soup I make in the slow cooker. I like to add leeks too, but like you said: whatever's on hand! The more veggies you add, the merrier it is!

    Hi! Great recipe, but the text is showing up all yellow for me. Is this happening for you too? IT's hard to read!
