This soup is absolutely amazing. So delicious and a very welcome change to roasting parsnips which I'd got into the habit of doing. I swapped the coriander and cumin seeds for dried leaf ad ground. The mustard seeds I swapped for wholegrain mustard and the plum tomatoes for two large beef tomatoes. Not because I wanted to modify the recipe but because it was all I had in and it still turned out brilliantly. My two year old and my fussy husband loved it too so it will definitely become a regular in our house from now on! Oh and just in case your worried its a 'spicy' soup it isn't, it's a beautiful lovely sweet warm flavour.

Very tasty soup, best parsnip soup receipe that I have made to date. Was easy to make and enjoyed by all. Will make again.

I thought this recipe was really nice, although I would suggest grinding the seeds or using gound instead, we didn't like the hard little bits!

Although I'm not a big fan of parsnip, this is one of the best soups I've ever had. I add less stock than the recipe to have a thicker soup. Delicious!

Was a bit short on parsnips, so added a few carrots that were past their best! A lovely soup, will definitely make again!

Good recipe with a spicy, fruity taste but felt a bit too salty for me - possibly the wrong stock cubes!

Not being a parsnip fan I didn't expect to like this soup..but it was absolutely gorgeous!!! Mmmm! One of the best soups I have ever made :) followed the recipe apart from omitting oil and using fry-light, and it turned out perfect.

This soup is lovely and warming with just the right amount of spiciness. Great for a cold winters day. Very scrummy! Enjoy!

Very nice soup. I also left out the tomatoes due to not having any.

Great soup, I had no tomatoes, so I used a tin of chopped, and added them with the stock, and used whole grain mustard, instead of mustard seeds, and added a carrot that was left in the fridge.

This was a really tasty recipe - I think next time I will add some honey to the oil and spices to bring out the sweetness of the parsnip. Make in bulk and freeze!

Have just made this lovely soup today. I was too hungry to roast the parsnips and spices etc so I just heated oil and added the dry spices until the seeds popped to release their flavour. I then added chopped parsnips, tomatoes and onions to the stock. Used homemade chicken stock also. Very lovely, tasty soup. Hubby will be happy with this in his lunchbox
