  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Peel the turnips, chop them into small chunks, and set them aside.
  3. Step 3

    Peel and finely chop onions or clean and finely chop leeks . Set aside.
  4. Step 4

    Chop garlic and set aside.
  5. Step 5

    Heat the oil or butter in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions or leeks, sprinkle with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft, about 3 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  7. Step 7

    Add the turnips and broth. Bring everything to a boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook until the turnips are very tender about 10 minutes.
  8. Step 8

    In a blender, whirl the soup until very smooth, at least 2 minutes per batch. (Tip: Cover the lid of the blender with a kitchen towel to prevent burns.)
  9. Step 9

    Return the soup to pot and add the cream. Adding just 1/4 cup will smooth out the edges of the soup; the more you add the thicker and more luxurious the soup will become. Add salt to taste.
  10. Step 10

    Garnish with shreds of thinly cut turnip greens or parsley, if you like. Serve the soup hot.
