Super easy and delicious! I made some changes for what I had on hand, which certainly changed it a little bit. I used celeriac, potato, and carrot (instead of rutabaga and parsnip.) Instead of trout, I caramelized some sliced shallot in miso broth, liquid smoke, and Old Bay Seasoning. Definitely adding this to my "easy weeknight meals" list.

This is a delicious soup, quick and easy to make. I usually double the recipe and put half in the freezer for a later date. So handy to be able to pull the container out of the freezer, thaw and top the soup with the trout, and voila, ten minutes to fix dinner.
