Root Vegetable Soup

I have not updated for a long time! I was reading an article about root vegetables in the New Yorker yesterday and I was inspired to make soup.

1 large sweet potato
5 fingerling or small yukon gold potatos
1 large onion
3 cloves of garlic
3 carrots
1 large head of fennel
3 parsnips
olive oil
6 cups of water
1. Coat the bottom of a large pot with olive oil and heat.
2. Sautee onions and garlic first while peeling and copping the rest of the vegetables and cutting them into uniformly sized pieces.
3. Add the vegetables, water, and seasoning and bring to a boil and then simmer for a while. I simmered this for about an hour.
You can also add a precooked chopped up piece of vegetarian chicken to your bowl before serving. I did this today with some leftover soup and a boca chick patty.
