For the soup


Start Cooking

Prepare the Soup

  1. Heat oil in a 5-liter pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 10 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.

  2. Add chopped parsnips, carrots, water, and chicken soup or substitution, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 50 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

  3. Remove from heat; let stand five minutes. Carefully puree hot soup with an immersion blender until smooth. Add all seasonings. Taste and adjust if necessary.

For the Garnish

  1. Heat oil in a small frying pan.

  2. With a vegetable peeler, peel off round slices of parsnip and carrot. Add slices to frying pan and fry for two to three minutes or until lightly browned and crisp, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels.

  3. Sprinkle chips over soup. Add chopped chives if desired.


When making this soup during the year, add a pinch of nutmeg too.


If serving with a dairy meal, add some cooking cream right before serving and swirl through the soup. Delicious!
