I got this delicious recipe from my friend, Lydia, that owns a rubber stamping store in our town. I design stamps for her. Her husband is the one that makes this yummy soup. I first had it at her home and had seconds, but didn't want to act "piggy" and ask for thirds, so I made it myself and guess what--I had it for breakfast, lunch and snacks during the day. I did this till it was gone and over the course of a couple of days, I ate the whole thing. Don't let the parsnips scare you, but please do add them. They give flavor but you do not taste them.
