My daughters love turnip soup and I am so glad they do. As it is delicious and healthy, full of vegetables and therefore rich in vitamins.


Whenever I have the chance I prepare them this tasty, delicious soup, a great meal for cold days. Turnips are ideal for soups as they bring a special flavor. Give it a try,  you and you're family will be delighted.
