Cream of Parsnip Soup

Cream of Parsnip Soup created by Sackville

So creamy, and not a bit of cream or milk in this. The creaminess comes totally from the parsnips.

    A lovely soup to use up those winter root vegetables. Roasting the parsnips really brings out their natural sweetness and the salty bacon works well with this. I agree the soup wasn't the most attractive and a bit thick but what it lacked in presentation it made up for in taste.

    Fantastic recipe - after I accidentally ordered 3.5 kilos of parsnips from my online supermarket (a quantity of 7 meant 7 bags, not 7 parsnips..hmm), I decided to make a batch using this recipe. 2 hours later, I had a hearty evening meal, and for the next 7 days, a sweet and filling lunch. I found the texture was perfect, and from such a simple recipe! No extra ingredients were used. I never thought parsnips could be so sweet.

    Absolutely delicious! A bit ugly though. I may have made it a bit too thick, it was like a porridge in thickness. Incredibly good though. Definitely a keeper at our house.
