1Pierce the rutabaga, turnip, sweet potato, parsnips, and beet with a fork. Place all vegetables in a large, microwaveable bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 10-12 minutes, or until each of the veggies are soft to the touch.
2Cut peels off of each of the veggies; discard. Place half of peeled vegetables in a large blender with half of vegetable broth and cream. Blend until smooth and completely pureed. Pour mixture into medium saucepan. Repeat with remaining vegetables, broth and cream.
3Heat over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until steaming and hot. Serve topped with sour cream and bacon bits.
