"Creamy and savory, there are NEVER leftovers when I make this dish. A great way to incorporate turnips into your diet! If soup becomes too thick, thin with broth, water, or cream."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
this was very tasty. it was the first time I had turnips and i really liked it. I didn't have fresh thyme so i used like a tsp of dried. very hearty and delicious.
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 wonderful. Very simple and not very time consuming. I hate when people change the recipe and then say how wonderful it was but I find using chicken stock instead of water added flavor. I add 2 bulbs of minced garlic with the potato/turnip and add whatever fresh herbs I have on hand with the thyme. Leeks work really well for the onions. To save calories you can put some of the soup in a blender to thicken it instead of adding heavy cream and it is delicious that way as well but it obviously changes the texture. Either or this is a go too recipe on those cold winter nights.
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 :-)
