REC:Roasted Swede and Honey Soup

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp honey
1 onion, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped

Pumpkinseed or flavoured oil, to drizzle


1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Place the swede on a roasting tin and drizzle over half the oil and the honey. Place in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes. Blitz in the food processor or pass through a mouli and set to one side.

Looks good, but, I've never heard of a "swede". I'm assuming it's NOT a Swedish person. Could you enlighten me?

LOL You're right Allen it's not a Swedish person. A swede (when it comes to vegetables) is just another name (more commonly used in Europe) for rutabagas, I think the Scottish may also call them neeps (paging Ishbel ). In a pinch you could easily sub it with turnips in this recipe, I bet that would taste really nice too.
