Ingredients
  • 3 medium sized turnips
  • (2⅓ cups / 320 grams), peeled and diced into 3 cm ( 1.2 inches) cubes
  • 2 to 3 large russet potatoes
  • (2 ½ cups / 420 grams), peeled and diced into 3 cm ( 1.2 inches) cubes
  • 2 medium sized white onions
  • (2 cups / 220 grams), peeled and diced into 3 cm ( 1.2 inches) cubes
  • 4 large carrots
  • (2 ½ cups / 420 grams), peeled and diced into 3 cm ( 1.2 inches) cubes
  • 6 cups
  • (1 ½ liters) water
  • 2 medium sized white or savoy cabbages
  • (10 cups / 680 grams), roughly cut into strips
  • 1 ½ cups (320 grams)
  • cooked cannellini beans
  • ½ teaspoon
  • sea salt
  • olive oil
  • to taste
Instructions
  1. In a large pot over high heat, bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, add the  turnips, potatoes, onions and carrots to the pot. Decrease the heat to a simmer, add the salt and cook, covered, from 15 to 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  2. With the help of an immersion blender, purée all the ingredients until totally smooth – you’re looking for a creamy and slightly thick broth here. Have a taste and add a bit more salt if necessary. Now, add the cabbage strips to the pot and cook for additional 5 minutes, or until the cabbage is cooked through but still holding some texture.
  3. When the cabbage is cooked, turn off the heat and add the cooked cannelini beans to the soup.
  4. Serve the soup in bowls and drizzle a little olive oil over each serving. Perfect along with a good slice of crusty bread.
