Instructions
  1. First prep all the ingredients, making sure that the cube size is consistent. In a large sauté pan, cast iron skillet or dutch oven, over medium high heat, add each root vegetable separately with a tablespoon of olive oil and a touch of salt. Stir occasionally; giving each side a nice caramelization. This will add a nice color and sweetness to the vegetables, giving the soup depth. Once each root vegetable is done, place into a large stock pot.
  2. Next, in the same pan, add the yellow onions and sauté over medium heat, until they are past transparent. Add leeks, shallots, garlic and season with salt. Continue to cook, until the mixture has a nice dark brown (not burnt) color are sweet aroma. At the middle to end of cooking, start adding 2/3’s of the herbs, reserving the last 1/3 for the finishing of the soup. As the mixture finishes it’s caramelization, deglaze the pan with 3/4 of the bottle of Imperial Red Ale, about 16 ounces. Stir the bottom of the pan to remove any browned bits. Pour mixture in with other vegetables. Add stones (does add a nice mineral component to the soup), bay leaves and stock/water. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 20-30 minutes or until all the vegetables are cooked through, but not overcooked into a mush. Test for salt and pepper, adding the remaining herbs and beer, to re-freshen the flavors.
  3. You can serve this soup a few different ways. One being in a large hollowed out pumpkin, then filled with boiling water for 10 minutes. Another is to strain out the vegetables, distributing them among the number of bowls being served, then at table side, pour the broth over for presentation.
