Our neighbour gave us a bag of parsnips freshly picked from her allotment, so I roasted them and I thought a parsnip soup would be a good way to use these parsnips. This soup is really easy to make, and it's very tasty.
  1. Heat the olive oil in a pot alongside the butter, then add the onions, garlic, ginger and garam masala
  2. Fry on medium heat for 10 minutes, or until the onions are soft
  3. Add the parsnips, and stir until coated with the mixture
  4. Add the stock cube to the water, then add this to the pot, alongside the milk. Add the salt and black pepper and bring to the boil, then turn down heat and simmer whilst covered for 30 minutes
  5. Check if the parsnips are cooked (they should be soft when you stick a knife in)
  6. Remove from heat and blend the soup. Taste the soup and adjust seasoning
  7. At this point you may want to add the double cream to make it taste more rich, then put back on heat ready to serve

If you like parsnips, this recipe. Enjoy! :)
