Root Vegetable Soup with Parsley Pesto



  1. In a Dutch oven melt butter over medium-high heat. Add garlic cloves, chopped root vegetables, onion, and 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Cook about 10 minutes or until vegetables are golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add broth; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in horseradish. Cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes more. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, spread a small spoonful of the Parsley Pesto on the cut sides of the toasted ciabatta roll halves. Place rolls on a baking sheet, cut sides up. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat about 1 minute or until pesto is heated through. Drizzle any remaining pesto into the soup.

Parsley Pesto



  1. In a food processor combine flat-leaf Italian parsley, toasted pine nuts, grated Parmesan cheese, and garlic. Process until finely chopped.
  2. Gradually add 2 to 3 Tbsp. olive oil until desired consistency.
