Hey its friday! We are still snowed in, but the snow is now melting away, so hubbs is off to office.. back to the grind! So we got a big parsnip in the local farm delivery and after peeling it I was like, hmmm.. i dont think I like the smell of that thing.. It is quite a pungent smell/taste when raw.. You either like it or you dont. I added some of it to this soup for a warm wintery evening. The carrot and leek help alter the taste for someone who falls in the not a fan of parsnip group 🙂
This soup is easy and quick.. I think some lemongrass, ginger or some five-spice mix would go well with it too.

In October, 2011, the Government has approved a Rs 510 crore project to build a dolphin park, with a giant aquarium and a facility to train and keep dolphins along the Arabian Sea coastline in Sindhudurg. Such cruel dolphinariums have been criticised and banned in many countries and yet plans are in place to bring them to India.
Dolphinariums are little more than prisons, for what are sentient marine mammals. In fact, whilst the age of dolphins in the wild is 45 years, 53 per cent of dolphins die within three months of being kept in captivity.

🙏 thank you
I am about to try this recipe. I am intrigued how you measure a cup of carrots before you chop them? The recipe says a cup of carrots, chopped. Do you mean this, or is it a cup of chopped carrots? These could deliver quite different amounts of carrots (and other ingredients).
Any amount will work. It’s just a few tablespoons of difference depending on how you measure them
Thanks. I made the soup. Measured the cups by putting water in a jug and adding vegies until the water rose the right amount. I had to add quite a lot more water than the cup suggested to get it to be smooth enough. But it was delicious. Thanks for the recipe, and the reply.
A delicious soup! Thanks for sharing!! 🙂
This soup sounds so warming and delicious, combining the best of winter produce! I love the favors you have here!
Warm and hearty and with all the colors of winter.
The whole concept of imprisoning those enormous animals in a pond is a torture beyond words 🙁
Ah, now we’re snowed in here too… Such a bummer. All I want to do is cook, but it seems like we don’t have the right ingredients on hand for anything! Figures, huh?
Keep warm, and I hope you thaw out soon!
Just mouthwatering…looks so fresh, delectable & delicious!
THis is the kind of soup my hubby loves – piping hot 🙂
I don’t cook with parsnip enough-maybe this tasty soup will change that!
Thank you Neha, Torview, Deeps and Aarthi!
I love this any time of the week..You are making me to have it now..
