Recipe by waynejohn1234

I think I found this recipe in a British magazine. Differs from the heavy and rich parsnip soups and makes a wonderful first course. If you do not have all the spices don't worry - use what you have.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large saucepan over med. low heat.
  2. Add the garlic and remaining spices. Cook until fragrant which takes about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the onions and parsnips and stir well to coat them.
  4. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Cover with the stock.
  6. Raise the heat and bring to a boil.
  7. Reduce heat and simmer until parsnips are soft, approximately 25 minutes.
  8. Remove pan from heat and ladle, in batches, into a blender and puree until smooth.
  9. If it isn't quite smooth enough push the puree thru a sieve into a clean saucepan, discarding any solids that might still have accumulated.
  10. Reheat gently.
  11. P.S. can be served with some yoghurt on top.
