Root veggie turmeric soup

Root vegetables are often overlooked and this delicious recipe will help you realize that they are packed with flavour and goodness!



  1. Wash and peel the root veggies.
  2. In a large soup pot, heat olive oil. Add chopped onions and stir occasionally for 5 minutes. Add the cumin and turmeric and stir for a minute.
  3. Add the parsnips, carrots, and rutabaga to the soup pot. Stir and then add the water and saute for 5 more minutes.
  4. Next, add the garlic and veggie stock. Start with 4 cups and add extra only if you want a thinner consistency.
  5. Add the bay leaf and sea salt. Cook on low for 10-15 minutes or until veggies are starting to get tender.
  6. Finally, remove from heat and add full can of coconut milk. Stir until combined. Enjoy right away with some fresh parsley and pumpkin seeds!
  7. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Serves 6 to 8
This soup freezes well. I like to use recycled mason jars for the extras. Just make sure you leave about 1.5 inch space at the top of the jar for the soup to expand when it freezes, otherwise the jar will crack when you freeze it.
