Spicy Parsnip Soup Recipe

Here’s a nice soup recipe that I adapted to suit my cupboard, based on a few recipes I saw online. This is pretty painless to knock up and very tasty. Also good if you’ve got leftover parsnips from christmas.


  1. 1 tbsp olive oil
  2. 1 onion chopped
  3. Knob of butter (25g ish)
  4. 2 cloves garlic
  5. 1 tsp ground ginger
  6. 1 tsp toasted cumin (just dry toast them in a frying pan)
  7. 1 tsp garam masala
  8. 800g-ish parsnips diced
  9. 600-800ml vegetable stock (if you just aim to cover the vegetables that will probably end up in a nice thick consistency)
  10. 200ml double cream
  11. Salt and pepper

How to cook it:

  1. Give the onion 5-10 minutes or so in the olive oil to soften gently, then add the spices and garlic and combine together for a minute or two
  2. Add the butter and parsnips and cook with the lid on for 15 minutes
  3. Now add the stock and simmer for 10-15 mins before adding the double cream (don’t let it boil after you’ve added the cream, obviously)
  4. Blend with a metal hand blender or if you don’t have one, you’ll have to cool it and use a liquidizer
  5. Taste and season, serve with a crusty brown bread
