In my last post I mentioned that I was looking for ideas for recipes using parsnips as mine have done really well this year. Moonroot left a comment suggesting soup which is a brilliant idea as I often have soup for lunch in the winter. After a quick google search I chose this recipe as a starting point.
I changed it a bit to use ingredients I already had and ended up simmering (in enough water to just cover)
- four parsnips
- two leeks
- two crushed cloves of garlic
- one teaspoon curry paste - korma
- half teaspoon vegetable bouillon powder
- about a tablespoons of olive oil
I have to say that the colour of the soup isn't the most appetising but the flavour is brilliant. I have plenty left so lunch is sorted for a couple of days. It also pleases me that it is very economical. Since my leeks and parsnips were grown from saved seed they cost me virtually nothing so the cost must work out at less than 10p a mug. The ingredients above made enough for four portions.
Thank you moonroot for the suggestion.
