Reviews for Creamy Rutabaga Soup
Sort By :
"Bland and pasty. Had to add liquid to keep from burning to bottom of pot."
"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!!!"
"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."
