I used to make 7 vegetable soup with potatoes. I have since refined my recipe and skip the tubers. Why you ask? Well, my Vitamix is so powerful that it turns potato soup into glue and since we love our soups pureed I switched it up. This soup is super delicious and full of goodness especially when topped with matzo balls! Just in time for Passover tonight.
3 stalks of celery
8 baby turnips or 2 regular size turnips
1 gigantic leek or 2 regular size leeks
2 cloves of garlic
4 cups of water
Fresh dill, as much as you like
Salt and white pepper, to taste
Parsley and dill, for garnish
Prepare your mise en place by roughly chopping the vegetables into roughly the same size pieces.
Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water into a big soup pot and add the onions. Cook on medium heat until the onions start to soften. Add the rest of the vegetables and the rest of the water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and add the dill.
When everything is soft, turn the heat off and let sit for a few just to cool off. Transfer into the Vitamix or blender or use an immersion blender. Puree as much as you like.
Pour back into the pot and reheat or refrigerate or freeze until ready to use. Serve topped with fresh dill and chopped parsley and/or matzo balls. Enjoy!
