Ark Soup Recipe

Step 1

Saute all the vegetables in a large soup pot with the 2 tablespoons butter until vegetables are limp. Add chicken broth and simmer until turnips are tender. Cool slightly, then process a little at a time through a blender. Return soup to the pot and add the half-and-half. Re-heat gently and serve hot, garnished with a sprig of fresh dill.
