Rutabaga for Healthy Vegetable Soup Recipe


Here’s a tasty vegetable soup featuring rutabaga. Rutabaga is a healthy root vegetable you can use like a potato, but with less than half the calories and carbs of potato. Rutabaga is like a larger version of a turnip, only sweeter. It’s related to cabbage, and has a mild cabbagy taste, but not the “scary” cabbagy taste. Rutabaga is great in soups, and I love it simply seasoned and roasted in the oven. Like most produce, when buying rutabaga choose one that’s firm and seems heavy for it’s size, because that means it’s not too old, or dried out. Next time you’re at the market, pick up a rutabaga and give this vegetable soup a try and let me know what you think.

Chop rutabaga into large cubes, approximately 1/2 “squares, but err on larger pieces. In a large soup pot, heat oil on medium heat. Add seeds and cook about 20 seconds. Add garlic, hot pepper, and onion and saute for another 4-5 minutes. Add in seasoning and mix well. Add carrot, celery and rutabaga and mix well. Fill pot with enough broth or water to cover veggies (use veggie or chicken broth instead of water if eating soup the same day, use water if sitting overnight), cover with a lid, and bring pot to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer on low for 40-50 minutes until rutabaga is fork tender. That’s it! Give this easy rutabaga soup recipe a try and let me know what you think, and bon appétit!.
