This parsnip and apple soup from CookItSimply was one I picked at the last moment but I’m glad I did. It was super simple to make, tasty and surprisingly light.
Parsnip and Apple Soup
450 g parsnips (about 4 medium-large parsnips)
1 large onion
2 tbsp olive oil
250g Cox’s apples (about 3)
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
850 ml vegetable or chicken stock
285 ml milk
Salt and black pepper
Chop the onion finely, slice the parsnips; core, peel and chop the apples.
Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onions and cover with a lid to soften.
Once the onions have softened, add the nutmeg, apples, parsnips, stock and nutmeg, stirring well.
Simmer for around 15-20 minutes – the parsnips should be soft, but not falling apart.
Whiz with a hand blender.
Add the milk, season with salt and pepper.
I sprinkled some chilli flakes on mine when done – it gave the whole thing a nice kick =)
Definitely a soup I’d make again – good quantities, simple ingredients and not too heavy. Many parsnip soups are a little cloying but the apple seems to stop this one from being so at all.
