Simply Swede Soup

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

On a recent trip to Ikea, my husband and I picked up a fantastic soup book that offers ideas with vegetables in season.  It is called A Soup for Every Day by the New Covent Garden Food Company.  Every recipe looks delicious, tells you how long the prep time is, and how many servings the recipe makes.  Remember most soups freeze well and can be stored in the freezer for a busy day. Enjoy the suggestion for today- Simply Swede (aka rutabaga)!


1 swede, diced
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
5 tablespoons double dream
775 ml chicken stock
1 teaspoon pumpkin oil

Directions (1 hour 10 min prep time, serves 4)
1.  Preheat oven to 170 degrees C/325 degrees F/gas mark 3.

2.  Toss the swede in the honey and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

3.  Season to taste and roast in oven for 1 hour.

4.  Heat the remaining olive oil in a pan.

5.  Add onion and thyme, then cook gently for 5 minutes until soft and brown.

6.  Add the roasted swede, cream, and chicken stock.

7.  Bring to a boil.

8.  Blend until smooth.

9.  Season to taste, add pumpkin oil, and serve.
