Turnip tastic soup 

Super simple messy soup was just the ticket this evening. It was so bbbrrr but beautiful out today. 

1 turnip peeling and chopped 

3 potatoes peeling and chopped

1 leek finely chopped 

3 cloves of garlic

1 tin of coconut milk 




Veg stock 


Chilli flakes

Cook turnip and potatoes in water and veg stock

Sautée garlic and leek in a pan 

Add leek and garlic into the pot of cooked turnip, potatoes and veg stock/water

Blitz with hand blender or transfer to blender

Add 1 tin of coconut milk (optional) almond milk or soy cream are great here too or none of the above if you are on a calorie counting New Years start. 

Oodles of parsley, thyme, salt and pepper and a shake of chilli flakes 

I also added a spoon of my favourite whole grain and cognac mustard and sprinkling of sunflower seeds.

Quantities should make 5-6 bowls of soup.  

I divided the remaining soup into individual freezer bags with one serving per bag. They should hold for a month or so in the freezer. Handy for those lazy lunch days.
