Mutti's Quick and Easy Turnip Soup

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Unusual soup -- Mutti's Turnip Soup. Try it. You'll like it! Such a quick and healthy alternative.

Turnip soup? Steckrübensuppe? Yes, really! An unusual soup that tastes unusually good! Try this when you need something that's nourishing and quick.

Easy to make with just frozen turnips, frozen cooked meatballs, and frozen hash brown potatoes. That's it. Easy deliciousness! 

I learned this soup from my Mutti. It's loosely based on a German recipe, only instead of using fresh turnips, it uses frozen ones. If you really want to be cooking turnips from fresh, then you'll need a bit more time to peel and cube them.

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Add celery seeds and parsley to taste.
  • For the meat, you could use beef brisket, meaty soup bones, or a small roast. If the meat is raw, you'll need to cook the soup long enough to cook the meat thoroughly. If you want extra flavour, brown any raw meat first in a bit of oil before adding the rest of the ingredients.
  • You can use raw potatoes instead of the frozen hash brown potatoes. Just wash and chop up some new potatoes (that way you don't need to peel them, since their skins are thin.)
  • The Vegeta Food Seasoning has salt and dried vegetables in it. If you don't have this, just add about 1 tsp salt and some pepper to start.
  • Like the soup thinner, then leave it the way it is. If you like it thicker and creamier, the easy way to do this is to gradually add just enough instant mashed potato flakes, stirring constantly, until the soup is as thick as you like.

Oma says,

When I start to get ready to make this soup, I put a kettle of water on to boil. 

That way, once I have all the ingredients in the pot, I can add boiling hot water and the soup will come to boil quicker.
