Roasted Parsnip Soup with Spices

I love a good parsnip, but I don’t eat enough of them. This recipe maximises the flavours of the parsnip by roasting them before using them to make a soup with spices. It is another beautiful, warming Winter soup. Dollop Thick Thick Yoghurt  on top, or some home made Creme Fraiche.

Parsnip and Barley Soup with Garlic and Sage

A creamy delicious and wonderfully healthy soup for the coldest of days

Last winter we fell in love with Barley. It was never an ingredient that I used very much. And because of that, it retained an old-fashioned aura, something my Grandmother would have used in her soups and stews, but less common in today’s kitchen.

Then Jude and I got talking on Twitter about Barley, and she mentioned her amazing soup that combines parsnips and barley. I have to say that this combination is fantastic and much more than the sum of the ingredients. The parsnips melt into the soup and the barley adds creaminess and texture. It is pretty good, I have to say. I tweaked her recipe outline a little, and here it is.

Barley has made a comeback into today’s kitchen. Ottolenghi is not afraid to use it and his books contain several recipes. Other well known cooks have also included it. It has become a staple winter ingredient in our pantry too.

A Magical Spicy Parsnip and Carrot Soup with Crispy Garlic

A hearty soup complimented by crispy garlic.

Parsnips are under-rated. It has something to do with the fact that they can be woody if they are too old or bought out of season.But buy them when they are in season and at their prime, and they are wonderful winter vegetables.
