Spicy Carrot Turnip Ginger Soup

This week’s CSA was full of yummy root vegetables again, and I decided to see how turnips would work out in a carrot ginger soup. Here’s what I did:

1. Warm a large pot over medium heat, and melt about a tablespoon of coconut oil. Add minced ginger, minced garlic, and diced onions.

2. Add chopped carrots and turnips.

3. Let it cook for a bit on medium heat, till the edges of everything soften a little. Add celery and cook for 5 minutes or so more.

4. Add 3 cups of chicken stock and bring to a boil.

6. Mince and add 1/3 of a jalapeño (because this one was so hot!!), salt, and pepper.

7. Simmer for about 2 hours.

8. Mash.

I just sampled it, and think it’s tastier than any other carrot-based soup I’ve made to date. I think I might be pro-turnip for soups.
