Parsnip and Apple Soup

This is a delicious hearty soup and the blend of apple and parsnip goes very well.   It is one of our winter favourites and can be enhanced with a tablespoon of ground coriander if you wish.   Or you could also add a dash of cream once it is blended if you want it even richer.


25g butter

1 onion, peeled and chopped

1 garlic, peeled and crushed

450g parsnips, peeled and sliced

250g apples (Bramley preferable), peeled, cored and sliced

750ml vegetable stock

salt and pepper


  • Melt the butter in the pan and add the onion and garlic.  Sautee for 3-4 minutes until soft.
  • Add the parsnips and apple and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  • Add the vegetable stock, season to taste and bring to the boil.  Cover and simmer for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and blend in a food processor/with a hand blender.
  • Serve, slurp and enjoy!
