Recipe: Root Vegetable Soup

The following recipe is taken from “The Vineyard Years, a Memoir with Recipes.”

“When our garden is frosted out, winter vegetables take center stage. Low fat and flavorful, this soup is perfect when the weather turns cold. Russ created this recipe and does all the chopping, always making a big pot, as it improves significantly as it ages and the flavors meld; it will be much better on the fifth or sixth night. If you can wait, it’s best to not even eat it on the first day.”
