Parsnip Soup - A Delicious Roast And Lightly Spiced Parsnip Soup

Updated on October 10, 2014

Parsnip Soup Recipe

I made this parsnip soup as a starter for Christmas dinner last year and it went down so well that I have been making this particular parsnip soup ever since!

My homemade parsnip soup uses vegetable stock and olive oil, so it is suitable for vegetarians, but if you don't require a vegetarian parsnip soup recipe you could substitute the vegetable stock for chicken stock and roast the parsnips alongside your meat if you prefer.

What I love about cooking is taking something as simple as a parsnip and transforming it into something which is as delicious, warming and filling as this parsnip soup.

This parsnip soup certainly ticks all the boxes.

Parsnip soup is one in my series of 'Healthy Vegetarian Recipes'.
