Honey Parsnip Soup

After the excesses of Christmas, this parsnip soup was a welcome light lunch. It was a great way of using up the leftover parsnips and my Mum's cheese straws. I often forget how easy it is to make soup, and this tasted so good, I really should make them more often.

I used leek in this recipe as I had one in my fridge, but I would usually use a chopped onion. My sister left behind some chopped ginger and garlic and I used these instead of fresh.

This recipe serves 2.

Honey Parsnip Soup

  • 5 parsnips peeled and cored
  • 1 leek
  • 1tsp chopped garlic
  • 1tsp chopped ginger
  • 1/2 tsp chopped red chili
  • 1 vegetable oxo cube
  • 1tbsp honey
  • 500 ml semi skimmed milk
  • creme fraiche to finish
  1. Spray a saucepan with oil and heat the garlic, ginger and red chili. 
  2. Chop the parsnip, leek and add to the pan. Cover with water and add a vegetable oxo cube. Cook until the parsnip is soft and most of the water has evaporated.
  3. Put this into a food processor and add the milk and honey. Give it a whizz until nice and smooth.
  4. Depending on the type of food processor you have, you might want to warm this mixture through in a pan. Top with a little creme fraiche.
Pin it for later:

    1. I think I eat too much soup and then go off it and it is great to remind myself how good it is!
