Carrot & Parsnip Soup
Carrot and parsnip soup is the perfect light lunch treat or side dish at dinner time. Its creamy texture is complemented by the mixed nuts that add some crunchiness to the soup. The recipe is super quick to make and is ideal for using up leftover vegetables. It is so colourful and freezes and reheats well. It stores in the fridge for up to 2 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Recipe Tester Feedback: "The recipe produces a lovely creamy soup with a zingy after taste from the combination of parsnip and ginger. A flavour sensation without numerous ingredients, I will definitely make this again. My husband loved the seed and nut mix." - Christine
