Super easy, super quick and super delicious. Let’s give the poor lowly-old rutabaga a chance. It really is quite tasty, sort of a cross between cabbage and turnip.




Add oil to a large pot and add onion and celery. Season with salt and sauté until browned.

Add the rutabaga, parsnip, potato and the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the rutabaga and veg are soft, about 30 minutes. Mix in the chipotle and the black pepper.

Place in a blender or food processor (affiliate link) and blitz it around until smooth. Stir in the half n half and taste for seasoning. Simmer for another 15 minutes, until hot. Done.

*to get the smoke without the heat, sub in 2 teaspoons smoked paprika.


Chipotle peppers are quite spicy and smokey too. Here’s a tip, use a fork to fish out the peppers, place them in a cup and chop them up with scissors. Be sure to grab some of the adobo sauce for your soup as well, adds a great flavor punch. This method also saves your board from getting stained.¬†
