This is a delicious hearty soup - we really enjoyed it very much. The only change I made was to substitute potatoes for the parsnips as I did not have them and I left out the celery as DH is just not a celery fan. Otherwise, made as directed and it was sooo good. Made for PRMR, February, 2014.

Very good! I added some diced ham and a few splashes of red wine vinegar before garnishing with shaved parmesan and a drizzle of quality olive oil. Yum!
