Winter Warming Soup Parsnip and Apple

Winter is fast approaching and there's a nip in the air. Here at the Love Flavour office we change what we cook with the seasons.

Lynne our resident customer care team member conjured this up after visiting her local veggie restaurant. Here at Love Flavour we have a range of pallets to cater for from veggies to vegans to carnivores. So we made the soup again for all to try.

Here's our version of this 'soupa' soup winter parsnip and apple. As we are 'Love Flavour' we could not resist adding a bit of a twist, so we decided to pop in a couple of teaspoons of our Herbed Up Madras Curry Powder.  The result a hearty warming soup thats quick and easy to make. Make the most of these seasonal veggies and fruits.

Winter Warming Parsnip and Apple Soup

1 large onion 
1 desert spoon olive oil 
5/6 medium parsnips
2 medium english apples (cox's or russets are great)
2  vegetable stock pots
1 litre of hot water 
2 teaspoons of love flavour madras curry powder
Salt and pepper to taste

We garnished our soup with fresh coriander as we were showing off!!!!!

Step 1 

Finely chop the onion, and add to pan with pre-heated oil oil. Cook gently for approximately 5 minutes or until softened 

Step 2 

Remove the top from the parsnips and chop into small cubes (use food processor if available) no need to peel 

Repeat the above with the apples (cored) only peel if you wish.

Step 3

Add the parsnip and apple to the onions and cook for 5 minutes until they start to soften 

Step 4

Add the Love Flavour madras curry powder (for a spicier soup you can replaced this with our Herbed Up chilli powder 1 tsp or to taste). Stir in the pan and cook for a further 1 minute.

Step 5 

Make up the stock pots with 1 litre of water and add to the pan. Stir and leave to simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Step 6 

Add salt and pepper to taste

Step 7

Using a hand blender, blend the soup until almost smooth.

Serve with crusty bread and cosy in on a dark winters night.  Best eaten on a tray in front of the TV in your PJ's.
