Turnip Soup

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. This soup is a meatless soup like this Cabbage Soup I’ve posted a few time ago. Both soups are very light and comforting, a perfect dish especially during the cold days.

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