Week 29- Curried Parsnip Soup




Hi, and welcome to our Vegetarian Kitchen. Autumn is here, season of mists and mellow fruitfulness bringing shorter days and cold nights and what could be nicer than a warming bowl of soup. This week our recipe is for a lovely spicy Parsnip Soup.


2 Large Parsnips

3 oz Butter

1 medium size Onion (chopped)

2 cloves Garlic (minced or coped)

1 Litre Vegetable Stock (Green OXO or stock of your choice)

1 rounded teaspoon curry powder

Half Pint Single Cream

Salt &Pepper to taste

Chopped coriander or Parsley to garnish.


Peel and slice the Parsnips.

Heat the butter gently, add onion and cook until the onion is soft, add garlic, heat for a few more minutes. Stir in curry powder, cook for 1 minute, add parsnips and stock. Bring to the boil and simmr until the parsnips are cooked (about 20 minutes). Liquidise the soup.

Return the soup to a clean pan. Stir in the cream and season. Garnish with chopped coriander or fresh parsley.
