Step by step recipe


Stage 1
Creamy Winter Vegetable Soup : Photo of step #1
Choose your vegetables, preferably roots, such as celeriac, carrots, turnips, beetroot, black radishes, etc.

You should use a variety and aim for a balance with about the same weight of each, apart from strong-flavoured kinds, of which you will need less, or they are all you will taste. I am thinking in particular of celeriac and radishes.

Use pink rather than red beetroot if you can, otherwise the colour will be a strong reddish purple, which might not be very appealing - it's a matter of taste.
