Roasted Root Vegetable Soup & Crudite Plate

I am a big fan of root vegetables – and got this idea for a soup from A Year From Oak Cottage. The recipe is so easy to make: simply roast the vegetables, add them to some stock, puree and season how you would like, and voila!

Ingredients

1/2 butternut squash, peeled and cut into small chunks

1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into small chunks

2 parsnips, peeled and cut into small chunks

2 large carrots, peeled and cut into small chunks

1.5 cups hot stock

salt and pepper

olive oil

seasonings

Toss with olive oil and salt.  Roast the veg at 425F for 45 minutes.

Remove from oven, and add to pot of hot stock.  Mix with stock – I left it on the stove simmering approx. 10 mins.

Using an immersion blender, blend soup to your desired consistency.  I then added a dash of cinnamon and stevia to sweeten it a little bit.  Yum!

Crudite Plate

I made a crudite plate to go along with my soup.  The picture turned out nicely so I thought I’d post!

The plate has homemade hummus, carrots, and homemade gluten free Irish Soda Bread (recipe from Allergen Free Cuisine!)
