We harvested a huge amount of parsnips from the Millennium Square Urban Allotments on Thursday and had a conversation about what you can do with parsnips other than roast them. One of the easiest and tastiest things to do is to make a spicy parsnip soup which is sweet warming and delicious. It can also be made in an enormous batch and frozen for use later on!!


So what do you need?

6 large parsnips

1 onion

2 garlic cloves

1 chilli/chilli powder

1 ltr veg stock from a cube

Peel and chop the parsnips and put them in a pan, cover them with water and boil until they are soft.

In the meantime fry the onion until it starts to go soft and then chop up and add the garlic and the chilli if you are using a fresh one.

Once the parsnips are ready, drain them, put them back in the pan and add the onion, garlic and chilli mix as well as half the stock. Whizz with a hand blender and continue adding the stock until the soup is the consistency you like.

And serve!!
