This hearty and satisfying soup is perfect for the summertime. The sweet, tangy flavors of the root vegetables, onions, and garlic are blended with the rich broth to ensure that the flavor is all coming from the broth. The perfect soup to bring to a picnic or to enjoy at the table with family and friends.
This is another recipe we are trying out at a few of our events, and we have to say it’s not bad. The broth is creamy and full of flavor, and the root vegetables are sweet and well-seasoned. The root vegetables can be served as a side, so feel free to stir them into your regular soup recipe.
The recipe itself is quite simple. Start by blending all the ingredients, then cook the soup in a slow cooker for 8 to 12 hours. You can also prepare it in a blender or food processor, though we recommend that you do the whole thing in a slow cooker since it will be cooking at a lower temperature and it will take longer to cook.
Like any other soup, this one also has more than just veggies. For starters, the potatoes in it will be cooked in a sauce that tastes like potatoes and cheese all in one and will be served with a dollop of sour cream and a slice of red onion. And since the soup will be slightly sweet, you can add some sweet potato pieces if you prefer.
We recommend that you serve your soup with a dollop of sour cream and a slice of red onion.
The first time I tried this soup last year, I was really surprised. I was expecting a very soupy soup, but the actual texture was just like that of mashed potatoes, but with a stronger, chewier flavor. That said, I think the way it’s prepared will be very tasty.
The way this soup was prepared makes very good sense to us. When we tried it last year, we both agreed that the soup tasted like “mashed potatoes” and “sour cream.” We also had the distinct impression that the red onion was just sort of there, like a garnish, but we couldn’t pinpoint where exactly it was. This year, we were very pleasantly surprised. The soup was not at all soupy, but you could still taste the onion.
The reason it’s not in our recipe list is that we don’t want to try to make it taste like mashed potatoes. I think the salad recipe for the soup is not that great.
This year, we decided to add a few more ingredients, including a bit of red onion. We also added a bit of cheese, which we found to be a rather nice addition. I did not find the soup itself to be very soupy, but the vegetables were definitely nice and crisp. The recipe for the salad is just a bit of bland, but since we were cooking with the potato starch, it looked a lot more appealing.
Cheating on the dish was very easy. I didn’t have any concerns about the recipe for the salad because I knew that the soup would be the same. A bit of cheese did not go over well though. It was actually very dry and unappealing.
