  • 3 cups (1 large) peeled and very coarsely chopped sweet potato
  • 1 cup (1 large) peeled and thickly sliced parsnip
  • 1 cup (1 medium) thickly sliced leek (white and pale green parts only)
  • 3 large cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons MAGGI Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon

This recipe is a little time consuming but well worth the wait. The results were delicious and it tasted even better the next day as left-overs!

Not just for winter!

This soup is a bit of work but very much worth the trouble. My hubby who thinks he doesn't like squash even loved it! I wasn't sure about the parsnips myself but mixed in with the other flavors, it was great. I'll be making this again!

This soup is so delicious and creamy. I added 2 cups of whole kernel corn which made it more nutricious and interesting texture.

This is a delicious soup to nourish and warm you up on a cold winter day. It takes some time but it's worth it!

Great flavor

We are a family of soup lovers and I am always trying out new recipes. This one was a big hit. I chose not to puree the entire batch of soup because we prefer chunky-style soups. I also added more veggies, much better for you too. This one is a keeper.

Sophisticated taste, easy to make

After ladling a portion of soup per person, I squirted a spiral of sour cream from a generic plastic bottle--the type used for catsup and mustard--atop each bowl, which made a beautiful presentation. Absolutely delicious.
