This gorgeous and nutrient-packed White Turnip Soup was shared by my long-time pal, KC Scott, who formerly worked as a chef at the Ritz Carlton. Her 8-year-old daughter dubbed this Turnip Soup “divine.”

A lot of small, white turnips with full greens are available in supermarkets and farmers markets right now, but you can also make this soup out of leeks.

White Turnip Soup

Chop up some onions, shallots and garlic and sautee in either butter or olive oil (or use a combination of 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil).

She then whisked some chicken stock together (4-6 cups) using Better than Bouillon brand with water, but you can use other kind of pre-made chicken stock, and small-diced white turnips. Simmer this mixture for 8 minutes then add the julienned turnip greens for a quick minute or two.

If using chicken stock (and/or the butter) that already has sodium/salt in it, this recipe may not need any additional salt to season, but if using low-sodium, sodium-free stock, or unsalted butter, you can add some kosher or sea salt to taste. Use gluten-free stock or homemade stock, if you have gluten intolerance, or replace with vegetable stock if you’re vegetarian/vegan.

This soup can be paired with some crusty baguettes and cheese, Bruschetta, crudites, or anything else you’d like on the side.
