Day 845 – #33 Try 50 New Recipes

photo(5)Laura (my sister) and I were chatting the other week about cooking.  She was saying she struggled with lunches and I said about how I often have soup.  I don’t know how we got around to Parsnip Soup, but we did.  She then made some and said it was delicious.  I’ve never made Parsnip Soup before.  I didn’t like parsnips for a very long time and although I like them now, I don’t eat that many of them.  But I had some leftover from Christmas that I wanted to use up so I thought I’d give it a try.

I had a look in my favourite cookery book – The Cook’s Scrapbook by Reader’s Digest (link) for a recipe and found a very basic one.  It’s nothing more than parsnips sauteed in butter and then simmered in vegetable stock for 20 mins.  After blending add some cream and reheat.  Top with a sprinkle of parsley.  Nothing to it.  It’s absolutely gorgeous!  Really velvety smooth and creamy.  Proper lush.  Mark polished off a whole bowl with minimal assistance from the bread bin…. (He’s one of those people who can’t eat a bowl of soup without half a loaf of bread – why he can’t use a soup spoon like the rest of us I don’t know….!)

I will definitely make this again – it’s wonderful.
