Creamy Rosemary Turnip and Rice Soup
This is a very thick and creamy soup– my husband loves it.
½ c. dry rice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
¼ c. minced onion
1 small clove garlic, minced or pressed
Salt and pepper
5 cups chicken or vegetable broth (+may need a little more)
1½ c. ¼” diced turnips
1½ tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
Parmesan cheese, optional
Grind the rice in a spice mill or small food processor for 10-15 seconds or until the rice is in tiny pieces and set aside.
In a soup pot, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil for a couple of minutes, until soft and aromatic. Season with salt and pepper, add the broth and rice, and low simmer for 5 minutes. Add the turnips and rosemary, and continue cooking on low simmer for another 20 minutes, or until turnips are tender. If soup gets too thick add a little more broth or water.
Taste, season, and serve with a sprinkle of parmesan if desired.
