Today I am going to show you how to cook turnip soup. It's very easy, very delicious, and very nutritious. It needs only a few ingredients. Of course, turnip is the main one. You may use any type of these vegetables as this may deffer from one country to another. It is known that the most common type is mostly white-skinned, apart from the upper area which is purple, red, or greenish, the one I am using in this recipe. However, the most common type in Morocco is the long white turnip which is not very different though.
- 250g Turnip, peeled and cut in half
- 1 Onion, pealed and cut in half
- 1 Small bunch parsley and coriander
- 1 Beef stock square
- 2 Gloves Garlic
- 2 Tbsp Olive oil
- 2 Tbsp Soy sauce
- 3 cups Water
- Salt, pepper, and ginger (you may use fresh ginger if you have it)
1- Put all the ingredients in a pan and cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes, or until the turnip is cooked. Turn the heat off and let it cool.
2- Using a hand blender, or a blender, blend until you get a smooth mixture. Taste it so you can add any additional seasonings.
If it's thick, add more water, but bring it to a boil afterwards.
Heat it again before serving it, and it's done!
* Note that you may double the ingredients as needed, this recipe serves 2.
