"Before you go yuck give it a try. An abundance of turnips prompted me to find a different use for them. The stock I use has 980 mg of sodium in 32oz and I found I didn't need to add any extra salt." — beanie1951

cubed butternut squash
thinly sliced celery
ground black pepper
salt to taste
I used more butternut squash and turnips than called for, subbed vegetable stock for the chicken stock, and omitted the honey. Great soup!
I prefer straight up butternut squash soup over this but it wasn't bad. Even though I added at least an extra cup of squash, the parsnips muted it, not just in color, but in flavor too. It was quite bland and really needed the optional salt and I also added about 1/2 teaspoon curry powder to give it a flavor boost. I used my immersion blender to puree it. The recipe really should include this step. However, if you are looking for a way to use up parsnips for some reason - this would work!
This was the first time I have ever ENJOYED turnips! I didn't even measure anything, just threw it in and it was absolutely delicious! So, I ended up using a whole squash (didn't measure out 2 c). I also didn't heat the broth separately or add the salt. Sweet and tangy! I will definitely make this again!
I made this tonight and it was so good! It doesn't call for much cayenne pepper, but it was a bit spicy for my family so I will prob use less or omit it next time. Maybe use a little less pepper. I didn't put honey in i didn't think it needed the sweetness since the turnips are already sweet. Loved it and love the new use for turnips & squash.
This was incredible. Even the picky eaters in my family loved it! I had to make another batch because it was gone so quickly. I normally don't really like turnips but I was given several pounds of them and had to find something to do with them. I will now go out of my way to acquire turnips just for this soup!
Amazing! I added cream cheese and pureed it. We ate it with rosemary bread. My 3 and 1 year old even loved it!
This soup is absolutely delicious!!! Made it without celery, added a little curry powder as per a previous comment, and pureed it with some light sour cream! SO GOOD!!!! I will definitly make this again
Delicious! Perfect for solstice soup this year. I was out of butter, only used olive oil, and it was just fine. Also added about 1/4 cup heavy cream. I especially like the coriander.
