Parsnips

I love parsnips, so much 

The parsnip is a root vegetable closely related to carrot

They re cream in colour and a root vegetable growth in the ground

They are generally & naturally quite sweet – yum!

Hints & Tips for your Spicy Parsnip Soup 

  • You can use either a white or a red onion 
  • Peel or scrub your parsnips (I scrub) chop into  even sized pieces 
  • Use a chicken or vegetable stock cube. If you use a vegan or vegetable stock cure it makes this soup vegetarian and/or vegan! 
  • I use a Medium Curry Powder and 2 teaspoons. If you like it more spicy feel free to add another teaspoon 
  • Fresh coriander (cilantro) at the end really does add another flavour dimension 
  • Adding Low fat cream or a little milk before serving really add a velvet nature to the soup – I recommend it

 

How to make Curried Parsnip Soup 

Well it couldn’t be simpler to be honest.

Full instructions on the recipe card at the bottom of this post 

Step 1 

Fry your onions, garlic and curry powder over a medium heat for 2 minutes, stiring 

 

Step 2 – fry your parsnips, onion & potato for your soup

Add your chopped parsnips and potatoes and coat with the onion mix for 2 minutes 

 

Step 3

Add your water and stock cube, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes 

 

Step 4  – Blend your parsnip soup 

Remove from the heat, blend with a hand blender to processor and serve 

I find adding a tablespoon of low fat cream or milk and coriander leaves really revs this soup up 

Season to your liking with salt & black pepper and enjoy!

Can I freeze this Parsnip Soup? 

I strongly recommend you don’t.

Some things are not great for freezing and this soup is one of them, it really affects the texture

 

How to store Spicy Parsnip Soup 

If you do have any leftover. Let it cool downwind then put it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days 

To reheat pop it in a pan and  reheat until piping hot on the hob. If it’s too thick add a dash of water 

 

Vegetarian/Vegan Curried  Parsnip Soup

If you use a vegetable stock cube (or vegan) then it is both vegetarian & vegan 

If you want to add milk or cream at the end then please select vegan alternative cream or milk
