If your CSA is anything like mine you’re going through what I like to call the Root Vegetable period. Long gone are the tomatoes and corn of summer. Instead, your bags are full of beautiful turnips, vibrant carrots, sweet onions and yams. Oh and let’s not forget all the potatoes.
I’ve been hoarding my stash of potatoes for the past three weeks so I could make one of the season’s most comforting and simplest of pleasures: baked potato soup. Most recipes are loaded with extra calories and bacon but this version is equally satisfying, vegetarian and made with easy/healthier substitutions.
