Turnip leek soup

    40 min

    Great for winter and fall, leeks are high in vitamin B6, folate, iron and vitamin C. A good immune booster for the colder months!

    I didn't get to try very much of this, because, er...my blender leaked the whole thing onto the floor of my kitchen. Ugh. The small amount I did taste was nice, though the tarragon was really overpowering, I didn't really feel like the leek and turnip were the main flavours. I'd suggest using less, or using a different herb entirely.  -  27 Jan 2012
