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!
Delicious roasted parsnips with bacon and a spicy bite
- 6-8 Large Parsnips
- 1 large carrot
- 4 potatoes
- 1 tsp. honey
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne Pepper
- 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 2 onions
- 2 chicken stock cubes
- 5 cups water
- 8 rashers of bacon
- 1 cup full-fat milk
Pre-heat the oven to 200C/390F
Scrub clean the parsnips, carrot, and potatoes, cut into large chunks and place on a large baking tray
Combine the honey, oil, cayenne, and pepper in a small dish and drizzle over the vegetables, sprinkle over the salt and bake for 40 minutes
Meanwhile, place a large soup pot over a medium heat and melt the butter
Peel and roughly dice the onion and add to the melted butter and saute until translucent
Crush the stock cubes and add to the onions and combine, then quickly add the water and stir until dissolved
Add the roasted vegetables to the soup pot and simmer on a low heat for 10-15 minutes
Cook the bacon in a frying pan until brown then allow to cool on some kitchen paper to drain off any excess fat
Take the soup off the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes before adding the milk
Blend the soup until smooth with a hand/immersion blender, adding a little water to achieve the desired consistency
Cut the bacon into small chunks and stir into the soup
Put back on a low heat until piping hot, then serve
