Easy Roasted Parsnip Soup Recipe – with Bacon Bits and a Kick

Easy Roasted Parsnip Soup Recipe

Picture it, im stood in the kitchen 3 seconds away from throwing out some Parsnips I’d bought in bulk a few days ago.  Then I suddenly think, wait a minute, I have nothing for dinner…

Oh, I know! Easy Roasted Parsnip soup.

I was not expecting the most delicious dinner I had in a long time to be the result of this situation.  It is totally delicious and I urge anyone who loves parsnip to take this recipe I created to use up old veg and turn it into the star of the show.  It would make the best Christmas day starter!

This recipe had a little spice but you could of course tone it down a little for any chilli haters (not my firends)!

Let me just add, on this same day I had some old muffins in the cupboard which only added to the amazingness of this recipe… Parsnip Soup with toasted muffins and scrummy melted butter.

Wow this was a happy happy day for me!
