Warming Winter Parsnip Soup!

Warming Winter Parsnip Soup!

The star of this delicious and warming soup is parsnip! A favourite of mine, this root vegetable is high in fibre, antioxidants and vitamin C! And it’s SO yummy!

parsnip 005w


1-2 tbsp coconut oil

1 chopped onion

5 ½ cups dice parsnip

1 tsp ground coriander

½ tsp ground cumin

½ tsp turmeric

cayenne pepper to taste

salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

5 cups home-made vegetable stock (I like to keep all the odds and ends from my vegetables during the week. On the weekend I throw it all in a pot to simmer for a few hours. Use right away or freeze in batches)

2/3 cup milk or milk alternative of choice (I love coconut milk!)


1-Melt coconut oil in a large pan or pot. Add the onions and parsnips and fry over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.

2-Stir in the spices and cook for another minute or two. Stir in your veggie stock and bring to a boil.

3-Reduce the heat, cover and simmer on medium-low heat for 45 minutes or until the parsnips are tender.

4-Puree in a blender until smooth. Return to your pot and add milk or milk alternative. Heat.

5-Garnish with a fresh herb of your choice and eat while warm! Yum!
