3 tablespoons butter
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 large rutabagas, peeled and diced (about 5 cups)
4 cups broth of choice
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 to 1 teaspoon dried ground chipotle, depending on your taste
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground pepper
Salt to taste
Melt butter in a large pot and add onion and celery, cooking until browned. Season with salt. Add the rutabaga and the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until the rutabaga is fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Add the chipotle and the pepper. Stir well.
Process in a blender or food processor until smooth, and pass through a fine mesh sieve to remove any chunks. Stir in the cream and taste. Gently simmer for 15 minutes. Add more salt, pepper, chipotle, or paprika if you think it needs it.
