Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!

6 medium home-grown turnips, (1 cup + 1/2 cup) cleaned, peeled & cut up into bite-sized chunks (pushed into the cups when peeled, cleaned & cut up)

1 medium leek, washed, cleaned, pad dry, the green & white part used, cut up into rings

1 small wild leek (only the white parts used here)

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & chopped

1 liter of vegan gluten-free hot stock

15 grins of black pepper

5 grins of ground pink salt

a fruity extra virgin olive oil

Step 2: Make the Soup.

Take a fitted soup cooking pot & add some drizzles of that fruity evoo. Heat up on medium heat. When hot, add chopped garlic, wild leek & leek rings. Stir often & fry for about 8 minutes. Now, add chopped turnips & season with back pepper & some pink salt, but not too much, stirring often. Fry for about 5 minutes more & then, add the hot stock. Turn the heat up & boil your soup until your turnips are tender. This took me about 10-15 minutes. Taste. My turnips pieces were cooked through & I added about 5 grins of black pepper.

Step 3: Blend the Soup & Eat! :)

Mix your soup with an immersion blender & ladle your soup into lovely soup bowls. Enjoy just like that or with some good bread on the side. Eat with a big smile on your face! MMM,…
