Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables: Peel the potatoes, parsnip, carrots, and turnips. Coarsely cut all the vegetables into uniform 3 cm pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add all the vegetables and cook over medium heat for about 10 min with occasional stirring. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of Cayenne pepper, if desired.
  3. Pour in the warm broth and water. Cook, uncovered, until the potatoes are cooked and fork-tender, about 20 min.
  4. Purée the soup in a blender. Adjust the seasoning. Add the milk, then warm up and serve.

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.

MMMMM, i used heavy cream instead of 2%, a bit more than a dash of cayenne and it's fantastic. Great for a cool fall evening like tonight :)
