there's just something about the texture of certain wintry vegetables that i can barely stomach - sweet potatoes, cooked carrots, most squash - but i'm trying. see the above? gnocchi with roasted carrots and turnips. the carrots and turnips were delicious in theory, all sweet and caramelized, and i ate a lot of them. i did!
...but i couldn't finish the job.
these carrots and parsnips were originally intended for a soup i like from fresh from the vegetarian slow cooker. if it's pureed, it's not a problem.
any irresistably tasty root vegetable soup recipes out there?
p.s. - yes, those are pre-packaged gnocchi. i ought to make my own and freeze them, but i'm still getting used to this roller-derby-4-or-5-nights-a-week thing. a girl's gotta eat. and feed her husband. often at different times.
