Spicy Parsnip and Apple Soup

Uncategorized | January 9, 2010 | By

The snow is still on the ground and it has been as cold as -17C here recently, so soup is definitely the order of the day! This is a bit of a makey-up recipe with bits from different books to fit the ingredients to hand.

Spicy Parsnip and Apple Soup

800g parsnips, peeled and choppped
2 onions
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 eating apples, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp ground coriander seeds
1 tsp ground cumin seeds
300ml semi-skimmed milk
600ml beef, chicken or vegetable stock

Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onions until soft, add the garlic and spices and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the parsnips and apples stirring well to cover them with the spices. Add the stock and cook until the parsnips are soft. When slightly cooled, use a hand blender or liquidiser to liquidise the soup. Add the milk and reheat. Serve with a sprinkling of cayenne pepper and lots of crusty bread.

I have to say that the photograph does not do the soup justice, it looks a bit odd and grey on there lol!

    Now that is JUST what you want when you get back inside from a freezing cold and snowy outside!

    That sounds and looks so warm and comforting. Just what we're needing with this weather ;0)

    That looks most welcoming for a cold freezing weather just now. It would be what I would love to have before stepping out into the cold or into the house from the cold outside.
