Creamy Rutabaga Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
I attended a dinner party where this smooth, nutty soup was served as an appetizer in demitasse cups. No one guessed that rutabagas were the main ingredient.—Cappy Hall Rearick, St. Simons Island, Georgia

I made this for Thanksgiving thinking there would be plenty left over! Boy was I wrong! This was gobbled up in no time! Fantastic flavor and I don't like rutabagas!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 21, 2012

This soup is amazing! Easily in my top 5 soups ever-the family loved it. I added 1/4 cup more water as the rutabaga and rice were cooking because I was afraid there wasn't enough liquid. I also used 1 can of 2% cream instead of the whole milk.
