Turnip Bisque

Influenced by 3 different turnip soup recipes, I combined a few selected steps from each to create this. This was the first time to try this one and I believe it went over quite well.


  • 2 turnips – Grated
  • 1 celery Stalk – Diced
  • 1/4 small onion – Diced
  • 1 Cup chicken stock
  • 4 Tsps. butter or margarine
  • 1/2 Leftover, Refrigerated, Baked potato – Peeled & Diced
  • 1 Cup water (Adjust For Desired Texture)
  • 1/2 Cup milk or Cream
  • 1/2 Cup V8 or tomato juice (I Prefer V8, Clamato Is Good Too)
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 Dash thyme
  • 2 Dashes parsley
  • 1 Dash garlic salt
  • 1 Dash cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 Can turnip Greens – Drained
  • 1 Stalk green onion (Garnish)
  • 1 Dollop sour cream (Garnish)


  • Saute turnips, celery, onion, stock, butter and potato for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Add water, milk, tomato juice, greens, bay leaf, thyme,salt, pepper and allow to simmer on low for about an hour.
  • Sprinkle parsley over the soup.
  • Prior to serving top each serving with sour cream and green onion.
