White turnip soup

White turnips

White turnips are not bitter like other turnips, they are very tasty and have a wonderful smooth texture once cooked. They make a very elegant soup as the color is a soft creamy white.

What you do: First cut off the greens and blanch them 5 minutes in salted water. Put them in the blender or food processor until you have a very fine paste-like texture using about 1/2 cup of the broth from blanching.

Put the peeled turnips in one liter of salted water ( or light colored broth) with one clove garlic and one onion. When they are done, reduce to a  fine puree in the blender or food processor with about 3 cups of the broth. Add 1/2 cup of 10% cream. Done!

Serve on a soup plate with a deep color, your soup should be white. Add a tbsp of the green paste in the centre of the plate, or decorate as you wish!

Note: this soup is good hot or chilled!

Last: the cream may be replaced by one potato or a 1/2 cup plain yogurt for the chilled version.
