Directions

  1. Cook the bacon in a large saucepan over medium heat until the fat begins to render, about 4 minutes; remove from heat, and drain most of the rendered bacon drippings, reserving about 1 tablespoon in the skillet.
  2. Return the pan with the bacon and reserved drippings to medium heat; cook and stir the onion in the bacon and fat until translucent, about 4 minutes more. Stir the potato and turnip into the bacon mixture; cook and stir until the potato and turnip pieces are warmed, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the thyme to the saucepan with enough water to cover the vegetable mixture; bring the water to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a brisk simmer until the potato and turnip are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Heat butter in a small skillet. Cook and stir the kale leaves until they wilt, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Stir the kale and the cream into the simmering soup; allow to simmer together another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove thyme sprigs before serving.

This was absolutely wonderful. I made it as directed except I didn't use potatoes as I am trying to watch carbs. I used dried thyme as I didn't have fresh and used chicken broth instead of water. This is going to be a winter go-to soup. Thanks!

Yeah, it was ok. Maybe I'm just not a turnip fan. I didn't have cream and used cream of chicken.

I used butter instead of bacon fat and added more savory spices such as oregano, rosemary and sage along with vegetable bullion for the broth....it was delicious!

This is a great recipe as is. For convenience, I omitted the bacon and used olive oil to cook instead, but did add Costco's precoooked/crumbled bacon bits as topping. Delightful. Even my picky eatting daughter enjoyed it. Great way to add the nutrition of turnips to our diet! Thx.

Made exactly as written and it was very good. We had fresh turnips and onions from our CSA share and fresh thyme from our herb garden and this was a good way to use them. The whole family enjoyed this. Very hearty with some fresh baked bread and a green salad.

This was truly delicious! I added extra seasoning: garlic, thyme sprigs, fresh oregano, and used chicken broth instead of water. I also sprinkled in bacon bits instead of real bacon. My WHOLE family loved it! Kids eating turnip soup and asking for seconds: Priceless :-)

I loved it. I had fresh Dill handy, so threw that in, in place of the thyme. Tasted amazing!
