Cream of Turnip Soup

This one is an awesome soup to make on those chilly fall and winter nights! It's also a personal favourite of many of the Cooper's staff. 

 

Ingredients:

2 medium onions, finely diced

2 stalks of celery, finely chopped

2 cloves minced garlic

4 cups diced turnip

1 medium potato, diced

3 cups chicken stock

tbsp sugar

1/4 tbsp pepper

2 cups cream

 

  • Cook all of the above for 30 minutes, simmering on medium heat
  • Cool slightly and process in blender until smooth
  • Return to pot and stir in cream. DO NOT boil
  • Stir gently and heat to serving temperature
  • While soup is cooking, fry 4 slices of bacon until crisp
  • Crumble and garnish soup when served
