I love having a warm lunch on colder days. That is why I love making easy soups from vegetables and herbs. I already shared a recipe for an easy pumpkin and thyme soup, which you can find here. This recipe also uses a sweet vegetable: parsnips. If you can’t find parsnips where you live, you could probably use some sort of carrot, seeing that parsnips are also root vegetables. For this soup I decided to use sage, because we had some in the garden, but feel free to use any herb you have on hand. This is a light soup, so I suggest having some nice whole wheat bread with it, otherwise this is not very filling. This soup can be made in just 15 minutes, so let’s just get started!
Ingredients for two bowls of soup:
- 300 grams of parsnips, washed and chopped
- One medium red onion, chopped
- 5 leaves of fresh sage, chopped
- A stock cube for 0.5 L of stock
- 0.5 L of boiling water
Throw all your ingredients into a pan and boil for 10-15 min, until your parsnip is soft.
Use an emersion blender to blend your soup until it is smooth.
Serve in two bowls and enjoy!
