finely chopped parsley for garnish, (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
Place the rutabaga chunks on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 4 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 35-45 minutes until the rutabaga is soft and slightly browned.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and butter in a medium pot. Add the onion, celery, and carrot, and saute for 5 minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.
Add the ground nutmeg, roasted rutabaga, and hot vegetable stock. Simmer for 15-20 minutes. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth or transfer to a blender that can process hot liquids.
Either stir in the heavy cream now or add it separately when serving. Give a taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve garnished with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.
