Recipe: Spiced Parsnip and Apple Soup

Spiced parsnip and apple soup recipe

Perfect parsnip soup for a cold winter’s day

Finding cheap parsnips when shopping can mean only one thing in the winter for me -soup!  Mr Foodie is a soup addict.  This time I decided a spiced parsnip and apple soup would help chase his winter blues away.

This is just the thing on a cold winter’s day.  Comforting, sweet but also savoury with a spicy tang.

Spiced parsnip and apple soup recipe

Ingredients

2x500g pack of parsnips
40g  Unsalted Butter
2 onions, roughly chopped
1 litre vegetable stock
2 tsp Curry Powder
4 tbsp chopped coriander
1 Bramley apple, peeled and chopped.
Crème Fraîche

Method

Keep aside the 3 smallest parsnips. Peel and chop the remainder.

Melt half the butter in a large saucepan and fry the onions, parsnips and apple for 5 minutes.

Add the stock and curry powder and bring to a simmer.

Cover with a lid and cook until the parsnips are  tender.

Whilst cooking the soup,  cut the reserved parsnips lengthways with a vegetable peeler into  thin slices.

Melt the remaining butter and fry the parsnips for until golden.

Stir half the coriander into the soup.

Blend until smooth using a stick blender or food processor.

Serve adding crispy parsnip slices, coriander and dollops of crème fraîche.
