Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Carrots, raw, 6 carrot (7-1/2")
    Parsnips, raw, 1.5 parsnip (9" long)
    Leeks, 2 leeks (white part only)
    Water 8 cup (8 fl oz)
    Ginger Root, 0.25 cup slices (1" dia)
    Garlic, 2 cloves
    Turmeric, ground, 2 tbsp
    Black pepper, freshly ground, 3 tbsp
    Sea Salt, 2 tbsp

Tips

You could substitude leeks for onions if you can't find it at your local grocery.

I made this my main dish for my lunch so it's 2 cups servings, but as a side dish or appetizer, make 1 cup servings and divide the nutritional information by 2.


Directions

Cut carrots and parsnips into small chunks.
Cut Leeks into 1/2 inches slices.
Peel and cut ginger into thin slices.
Peel and cut garlic into thin slices.
Put everything in a slow cooker or a large sauce pan and cover with 8 cups of water.
Simmer until every vegetable is soft.
Season with ground turmeric, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Blend with everything until smooth.

I cooked mine in the slow cooker over night, so it took around 6 hours on medium/high setting to cook, but it will be shorter if you do it on the stove top, maybe 1 hour or so.
You can blend it with a standing blender directly in the pot or in a traditionnal blender, but if you do so, remember to let your soup cool down a bit before putting it in the blender.


Serving Size: Makes around 4-2 cups servings.
