Here's a really earthy soup recipe for anyone daring enough to eat earth soup.
Earthy because the ingredients grow under the earth.
Earth with a y.
Because we like you!
Sweet Potatoes 4 to 6 medium size
Leeks (The white of 2 or 3 leeks)
Parsnips (small bag)
Chop all the ingredients above (whatever is bite size for you) and place in pan.
Add just enough oil to sweat the vegetables.
Do not brown them.
Ten minutes more or less should do.
Add 4 cups of vegetable broth.
Use your judgment here.
More or less may be needed.
Season with salt and pepper.
Just a bit until you've seasoned to your liking.
Simmer for 25 minutes.
If you decide to puree this you will have a semi-sweet creamy soup on your hands or in your bowl if you don't get any on your hands.
The next day I added small touches of cumin, garlic powder, and ground red pepper.
AJ liked the sweetness of the soup on day 1.
I preferred the next days seasonings.
I pureed half of it and saved the other half to try as is.
Chunk with a y.
I liked it better this way.
Chunks of sweet potatoes, parsnips, and cooked leeks.
Salt and pepper only.
If prepared this way you'll find the bitterness of the parsnip compliments the sweetness of the sweet potato, with the leeks bringing all the flavors into a nice balance.
On a cold cold night.
Have a bowl of Earth soup.
With a Y.
It's Yumm with a Y!!!!!!!!!!
