REVIEW: recipe rating
The taste is fabulous. I used frozen turnips because my grocery store did not have fresh rutabagas (yellow turnips everywhere except in Maryland.)

An immersible blender saves time over doing the batch processing in the recipe.

It works well as a low-fat recipe using fat-free half and half. Perfect while recovering from bariatric surgery. I added protein powder and it was still a nice thing soup
