Creamy Roast Vegetable Soup

I'm delighted to be a guest on Around the Plate.  


As you may have already figured out, I like soup. I make at least two - sometimes three - pots each week of the winter. Soup fills my belly and makes me happy. Plus it's good for me and my family.


This recipe is a weekly favorite. The formula is simple. I roast up a whole bunch of root vegetables. 



I prepare a really simple vegetable stock. It simmers on the stove while the root vegetables get soft and caramelized and make my house smell wonderful.

When the stock is nice and brown and the vegetables are beautifully roasted, I put everything in a pot and simmer for a bit.

Then I puree it, season to taste, and serve hot, garnished with sour cream, yogurt, or fresh herbs.

  4. Amazing! I do the same thing! Soup is the perfect way to use all the winter root veggies and roasting gives them such a lovely flavor! I can sneak all kinds of things into the pot that my children would never guess!

  9. Joanne, you're so right - you can do this with any veggies and it's always great. I use the same formula for a butternut squash soup (with butternut squash and green apples). If I have lots of parsnips and no sweet potatoes, that works too. Really works with whatever I have at hand.
