This was surprisingly good for a recipe that uses up turnips. I actually had too many turnips and not quite enough parsnips, but the soup was still mildly sweet and pleasant-tasting. My only regret is that I didn't use a whole pound of ground pork to make the meatballs (which were less of a pain to make than I expected), as what we have will not be enough to match the leftover soup. I served this as an entree with a glass of wine, but it does need a salad and/or bread to round it out as even with the meatballs it's not quite substantial enough. I don't expect to make this often as I don't often have turnips to use but I would make this again.
This soup is so delicious, the flavors blend so well together. Even my 18 months old son loves it. Makes great leftovers for lunch.
