Golden Autumn Soup Recipe

Here's a great way to use the freshest produce harvested in fall. It's a hot and hearty soup that I like to make for everyday dinners and special-occasion suppers.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings


  • 5 medium parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • 5 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium turnip, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream or evaporated skim milk
