The end of this week has been super cold with snow and frost so I thought making a nice hot soup with a kick to it would be nice for us!
Luckily I can digest parsnips no problem no matter how they are cooked! My partner (Jaimie) however struggles with them. Isn’t it strange how we both have the same illness and stoma but we digest things differently?!
Now, the good thing about this soup is you can add as much spices, as little or none at all depending on what you like. For me, I add in quite a bit as I LOVE spicy foods! This is also a very good soup to have if you are suffering from constipation – it will clear you out! ha ha.
So, let’s get right to what you need to make the Spicy Parsnip Soup –
- Olive Oil
- 1 large onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- chilli powder
- chilli flakes
- smoked paprika
- 675 grams of parsnips (one packet and a big from another)
- Vegetable stock
Starting the prep, peel the parsnips and cut into chunks. Do the same with the onion and add into the pan with olive oil, put in two garlic cloves, butter and spices.
Add in vegetable stock and boil for two hours.
Blend to a consistency that you like and serve!
