‘Soup’er Sunday – Parsnip and Apple Soup

Categories: 'Soup'er Sunday and Recipes.

With the onset of cooler Fall weather I’ve been making different soups, some to eat now and some for the freezer for those colder winter days.  A new soup for me to try this year was parsnip and apple soup.  I found this recipe at The English Kitchen and there is a link to the printable recipe there.  As usual I tweek recipes to suit me.  This meant leaving out the salt and pepper, only using part of a really big sweet onion, and adding a veggie stock cube to the water.

Parsnips aren’t everyone’s choice for a vegetable, but you have to be open minded and give them a try. Maybe it is an acquired taste.  Maybe it’s a British taste.  Another way I love parsnips is roasted with a few other veggies in the oven.

You need parsnips, onions, apples, vegetable stock and seasoning to taste.  The recipe calls for cooking apples which are almost non existent to find around here so I used Gala apples, and they gave the soup a nice sweet taste.  You could use whatever variety of apple you prefer.

Peel and chop the 3 ingredients.  Lightly cook the parsnips and onions in the oil, add the apples, water and veggie stock cube and cover and cook till tender.   Cool and put in the blender to make smooth.  Add the milk and blend again and it is ready to heat and serve.

It was delicious with some flax and quinoa bread and some chunks of cheese.  The rest was frozen for those cold winter days.  Two cups of soup is a good measure for fitting into the freezer bags.   I’ve tried freezing soup in various methods using round and square containers but now I use a medium size freezer bags as they lay flat and don’t take up as much room.  And they defrost a lot quicker.

There is nothing better than a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter day.
Have you enjoyed a delicious bowl of soup lately?  What is your favourite?

    “The Parsnip”
    The parsnip, children, I repeat,
    Is simply an anemic beet.
    Some people call the parsnip edible;
    Myself, I find this claim incredible.

    I’m afraid I agree. I’d like some other vegetable in my soup.

    Your post is making me hungry. 🙂

    FarmBoy makes/sells a parsnip and apple soup. I did try it once, liked the taste the apple gave it. I admit I wasn’t keen on the parsnip, though. I think I’d enjoy a squash/apple soup, however! Hmm, now I need to Google for a recipe!

    I grew up with parsnips , by themselves no thanks but put with other veggies and also roasted. Very interesting combination for soup. Today we are seeing or hearing of so many different combinations of foods or fruit now that we have so many different nationalities.
    Still mild here and no doubt the same or warmer when I reach Petrolia this afternoon.

  4. Your soup sounds delicious! I haven’t had parsnips in years and then it was mashed with potatoes. I made matzoh ball soup yesterday even though it was quite warm out. But it just feels like it should be soup time.
    Happy Thanksgivng!

  5. Welcome and thanks for linking up with Souper Sundays at Kahakai Kitchen this week! I am happy to have you join in any time with soups, sandwiches or salads. It’s fun you were posting under a similar name on your blog.

    I am a fan of parsnips and have a few soup recipes pinned to make with them if I ever get around to it. This one looks so tasty with the apple!

    Aloha,

    Happy Thanksgiving, Linda! I’m intrigued by the apple and parsnip combo and wished that I could sample your tasty soup! This warm weather is supposed to continue this week. It feels so odd to be wearing short sleeves outside in October!

  7. Hello crafty gardener, visiting from Soups Sammies and Sandwiches. I do like a good parsnip soup, but tend to stick with the same recipe, this one sounds good.
