Author Notes: I have two resolutions (more like goals I guess!) for 2010 ... use everything in our weekly organic farm to work box and don't just give the "curveballs" away, and enter at least one thing on Food52 each week! :-) This is my run at the turnips I have been staring down from last week and can I just say it came out DELICIOUS!aargersi

Serves: 4-6

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 medium turnips
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 quart low salt fat free chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons reduced fat peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 1/2 cup fat free half n half
  • chopped cilantro
  • toasted sesame seeds
  1. Peel and coarsley chop the onion, turnips, carrots, garlic and ginger. Don't worry about finesse - you are going to blend it all anyhow.
  2. Heat the olive oil in large saucepan to medium high. Saute the onions for 3-4 minutes until they sweat. Add the garlic and saute for 2-3 more minutes. Add the carrots and turnips.
  3. Pour in the broth and simmer until the turnips and carrots are very soft - about 20-25 minutes.
  4. Add the ginger and turn off the heat. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes (safety first!) then add the peanut butter, half and half, sriracha and tamari.
  5. Use an immersion blender (or carefully blend in a regular blender if you dont have immersion) until VERY smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Return to heat and bring back to a simmer.
  6. Note that this soup is quite thick - if you prefer a thinner soup you can add some more broth.
  7. ladle into a bowl, top with sesame seeds and cilantro, and enjoy!!!
