Ingredients

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 medium)
  • 2 pounds carrots (about 8 large)
  • 1-1/2 pounds parsnips (about 6 medium)
  • 2 large onions, quartered
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 cartons (32 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1 cup fat-free evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Minced fresh parsley and sage

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Peel and cut sweet potatoes, carrots and parsnips into 1-1/2-in. pieces; place in a large bowl. Add onions and garlic cloves; drizzle with oil and toss to coat. Divide mixture between 2 greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Roast 40-50 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Transfer vegetables to a Dutch oven. Add broth, milk, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  3. Puree soup using an immersion blender. Or cool soup slightly and puree in batches in a blender; return to pan and heat through. Sprinkle servings with minced herbs.
