Make it Fun!

Let little chefs add the ingredients to the soup pot. Imagine that you’re making a potion or witches’ brew!

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Makes: 4 servings

  • 2 carrots, diced

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 1 cup (250 ml) rutabaga or turnip, peeled and diced

  • 1 cup (250 ml) celery, diced

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 3 tbsp. (45 ml) all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups (500 ml) milk

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) 2% plain yogurt

How To:
  1. In a pot, combine carrots, onion, rutabaga, celery, bay leaf and 2 cups (500 ml) water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and boil gently for 20 min or until vegetables are tender.

  2. Whisk 2 tbsp. of flour into milk and gradually stir into pot. Increase heat to medium and simmer, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until thickened (do not let boil). Remove and discard bay leaf.

  3. Whisk remaining flour into yogurt. Stir yogurt into soup and heat, stirring for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve.

For Leftovers... 

Portion into containers and freeze the soup for a cold, rainy day! It’ll be sure to warm little chef’s up after playing outside.
