Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
1 Clove Finely Minced Garlic
1 Small Yellow Onion Finely Chopped
1/4th Cup Half and Half or Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Stick Land O Lakes Salted Butter
8 oz. Daisy Sour Cream

.5 oz Fresh Chives
1 Teaspoon Xanthan Gum (thickening agent)
Total Cost at Walmart: $25.53 (Some of these items you’ll already have in your kitchen, this is the cost if you have zero of the items)
Peel and Cube Turnips into 1-inch cubes, dice Onions and chop pork into your preferred size cubes. Chop the Chives into small slivers. Finely mince 1 clove of garlic.
Soup Base Directions:
Step 1: Melt 1 stick of Land O Lakes Salted BUTTER in pot, once melted add your entire diced ONION, 2 Knorr Chicken BOUILLON Cubes, 1 finely minced clove of GARLIC. Cook for 5 minutes to colorize the mixture and marry the flavors.
Step 2: Next add half of your CHIVES, 32 oz. of CHICKEN STOCK, cubed TURNIPS, and your diced PORK.
Step 3: Boil for 10 MINUTES, stirring occasionally then REDUCE HEAT to SIMMER.
Step 4: Add 1/4th cup HEAVY CREAM/HALF AND HALF, 1 block of Colby freshly shredded CHEESE, 8 oz. Daisy SOUR CREAM. Stir until completely mixed, no lumps or strings.
Step 5: Add 1 tsp. of XANTHAN GUM to thicken, IF USING HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM ADD ½ TSP. (Depending on how thick you like your soup broth, you can add none for a thinner soup or add ½ tsp more to make it thicker than a snicker)
Step 6: Stir constantly for 1 minute then allow the soup to cook on SIMMER for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally to really bring all these flavors together and to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom of your pan.
Enjoy this soup by topping it off with a sprinkle of Chives, Freshly shredded Cheese, Bacon pieces or Sour Cream. Salt and Pepper to taste! I hope you like this recipe, please comment below if you’ve tried it!
