This is my mother in law's family recipe that came with her from South Africa, and one of my favorite soups! She grates the turnips, carrots and parsnips in the food processor and it makes for a great texture in the soup. For the turnips, be sure to use the small white and purple ones - not the big wax turnips! It's very mild in flavor, and part of the regular winter rotation at our house. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
