Creamy Carrot and Turnip Soup

EARTH ANGEL VEGAN’S CREAMY CARROT AND TURNIP SOUP… is a delicious way to win the nutritional jackpot in one easy soup!  I belong to the Northwest Pennsylvania Growers Farm Share where I get a beautiful assortment of organic vegetables every other week.  This week I got some gorgeous turnips and carrots and decided to make this slightly sweet and slightly spicy soup!  We actually woke up to snow here in north- western PA on March 7th so this soup was just what the doctor ordered.  Turnips are rich in vitamins and minerals especially vitamin C.  Carrots are also a powerhouse of beta-carotene and fiber.  This soup was simple and really good on a blustery day.



3-4  turnips peeled and diced

2 large carrots peeled and diced

1 cup diced sweet onion

4 cups vegetable broth

2 cups low fat coconut milk

1 teaspoon Wildtree Ethiopian Spice Blend  (sprinkle more on before serving if desired)

1/2 teaspoon salt (more or less to taste or dietary restriction)

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Add diced vegetables to a heavy bottom soup pot over medium heat.  Dry saute for 3-4 minutes and then add the vegetable broth and Wildtree Ethiopian Spice Blend.  Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer.







Simmer until vegetables are tender.  At this point you can use an immersion blender to blend it in the pot (leaving some chunks of vegetables) or you can put about 3/4 of it into a blender to puree.  You can use a potato masher to mash it up if you don’t have access to a blender.  After it is blended to your liking add the coconut milk, salt, pepper, and parsley.  Bring this back to a simmer and serve!  This is good with crusty bread.  I was thinking some whole wheat potato gnocchi would be so good in this soup also 🙂 A pile of steamed greens would be super yummy to go along with this soup.


Wildtree Ethiopian Spice blend is a real gem!  It gives a warm spice and subtle heat.  It pairs so well with the coconut milk and carrots and turnips.

I love to use Wildtree organic spice blends in my oil free vegan recipes…
