Gingered Carrot and Parsnip Soup

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by pleiad7

This rich and creamy soup can be served hot or cold. I prefer it pureed as outlined in the recipe, but it's just as yummy unblended if you enjoy more texture to it.

I really enjoyed this soup. I substituted 1 large leak for the onion just because I had it in the fridge - it worked nicely. I needed to add 1 1/4 C additional water in order to cover the veggies. I would defnately make this again.
