In the recent issue of World Ark, there is a special section called, 'Tips for Better Living." Since the how-to series often discusses eating sustainable and seasonally, I thought sharing the recipe for Curried Parsnip Soup would be good addition.
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound parsnips, peels and cubed
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder
3 1/4 cup boiling vegetable broth
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
red pepper flakes or paprika for garnish
Saute the onion in a large pan over medium heat until soft, about five minutes. Add the parsnips, garlic and curry powder to the pan, and saute for a couple of minutes. Pour the vegetable broth into the pan, stir, and simmer for 15 minutes, until the parsnips are soft. Remove from heat and blend with a hand mixer, immersion blender or regular blender for 30 seconds to one minute. Pour back into the arge pan, then stir in milk and heat through. Season with salt and pepper, and garnish with paprika or pepper flakes.
If you enjoy parsnips - let us know how you cook with them in our comments section.
