Roasted Parsnip Soup Recipe

Roasted parsnip soup recipe, beautifully flavourful, with a big helping of parmesan. This really is one of my favourite soups, no matter what season.

Unlike other soups that I blend well until smooth and silky, this one has to be thick. The chunky texture makes the soup a lot more filling, one bowl, and you feel your stomach so full, that there is no way you can have something else after.

Which may not be quite a bad thing, if you want to be in shape for summer. Which, by the way, it was here only for a few days. But boy, I did feel it on my skin.

There were only about 18 degrees C, which made me think that it was the perfect time to go back to my summery sleeveless pretty dress. Bad idea! I managed to burn my skin so badly, it was red and sore for a few days.

Crazy British sunshine, I have never ever burnt myself like that, not even during super hot Romanian summers when the temperatures were well over 40 degrees C. Living in the UK, where sunshine is a rare thing, has made my skin quite sensitive. Oh, dear! Never mind!

Going back to my soup, I find that roasting the parsnips gives that extra yummy taste I was after. Same as with tomato soup, where roasting give it that wow factor.

It is an excellent soup for babies as well, my little one loves it. I do, however, skip the seasoning bit and I replace the vegetable stock with baby organic cube stock when I cook for her.  Isn’t it amazing when you can literally feed the whole family from one pan?

If you like the soup to have a creamier texture, you can swap the milk for heavy cream, but l find the soup to be naturally creamier anyway, so l prefer it less rich, so I can enjoy the very taste of the roasted parsnips.

Adding parmesan cheese enhances that nutty flavour that makes this soup a real treat with the whole family. Worth a try! And what about some delicious Baked Parsnip Fries?

    I’ve had several versions of parsnip soup – some thick, some thin – but I’ve never made it myself. I like most of my soups thick and hearty and this one looks just that.
