Wash your root vegetables and chop off the greens.
Chop in 1-inch pieces and toss with some butter & olive oil or coconut oil in a deep pot.
Add a little stock, herbs, and salt. Cover, and let it cook over medium heat for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
Blend with a stick blender (handheld) right in the pot. Add more stock, or cream, if desired.
