Curried Parsnip Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Geema

This recipe elevates the lowly parsnip into something special--a lovely Fall soup. Although not necessary, you can enrich this soup by adding some light cream just before reheating.

I used 3 small apples, 2 BIG garlic cloves, no flour, added 1 cup of red lentils (dahl) and 2 tbs of apple cider vinegar instead of lemon. 7 cups of vegetable stock was used. Once the soup is cooked I added 3/4 cup of soft tofu that was pureed with a handheld blender into a thick cream. Absolutely delicious!
