SIGN YR NAME ACROSS MY HEART

I just made up a recipe and it totally worked out, so I am sharing it here in case tomorrow morning when you go to the farmers market and impulse-purchase some turnips you get home and are at a loss with what to do with them.

"NEXT LEVEL TURNIP SOUP (FREESTYLE)"

what you will need:

1 or 2 baby new potatoes
1 bunch of turnips -- meaning 3 or 4
1 big leek
2 cloves of garlic
2-3 tablespoons of cream/soy creamer/milk
salt
pepper
a couple sprigs of rosemary and thyme chopped super tiny--about a teaspoon
a teaspoon of butter if yr not against it

then:
Put on a pot of salted water on the stove and get it boiling
peel the potato and the turnips and then cube them so they are all about the same size--half inch or so & peel the garlic and slice up the white part of the leek
and then dump the vegetables in the water and boil them for about 12-15 minutes until the turnip are soft enough that you can mash them easily against the side of the pot.
Then:
scoop out the vegetables from the water/dump them through a strainer, reserving about a half cup of the broth. Put the vegetables, the broth water, the creamer/milk, the butter, the herb and a little salt and some pepper to taste in to the blender. Make the blender go til it's smooth and ouila! There's the soup. Enough for two people.
