Rutabaga Soup Recipe

Posted on Mar 10 2011 - 2:10am by Mike Lieberman

When I was at the farmers market last week, I noticed rutabagas. I’d never had them before and was curious. The vendor hooked me up with one for free (gotta love the farmers market) and recommended making a soup with it. So I made one and it came out damned good.

This rutabaga soup is dairy and gluten free.

    Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 rutabaga
  • 2 ribs of celery
  • 1/4 medium sized onion
  • 3-4 cups vegetable broth
  • Tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • Dash of sea salt
    How to make:

  • Peel and cube the rutabaga
  • Slice up celery and onion
  • Pour olive oil over into a pan and heat up
  • Add onions and sautee for a 3-4 minutes
  • Add celery and sautee for another 5 mintues
  • Add rutabaga and stir up for another 5 minutes or so
  • Add enough veggie broth and bay leaves to cover the vegetables
  • Cover the pot and let it simmer for about 20 minutes until the rutabagas are soft
  • When the rutabagas are soft, you can either mash everything up in the pan or put it into a blender or food processor
  • Add back to the pan and stir it up
  • Serve with salt and paprika
