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

Parsnips come in packs of 600g from supermarket, so I added a carrot to make up the missing 75g. My soups usually come out sludgy and tasteless but this beats the supermarket version and much cheaper.

Just made this with some parsnips from the fridge that i was about to throw out. OMG it's delicious! deep, sweet, roasted parsnip flavour with a punch. I'm suddenly looking forward to lunch at work?
Thanks!

This was delicious. It was very easy to make, even with a hand blender. Great with onion bread.

Lovely soup and very straightforward to make. Very important to add the lemon juice though! Completely transformed it! Shall be making again for sure.

Great hearty soup! I added carrots that needed using up. Substituted mustard seeds for mustard powder and the same for coriander seeds (only had ground coriander) I just reduced the amounts. Oh and I didn't have any turmeric so missed that out! The soup was great, would make again.

A delicious soup. Only time consuming part is dicing the parsnip but worth the effort. Also hard to resist eating the parsnip when it comes out of the oven. Now that I have stocked up on those spices I will make sure I cook this soup again....a winner.

Lovely - especially on a cold, rainy day. The lemon really lifts the flavour.

Superb! Only thing I would change is to reduce the qty of stock slightly to give a thicker soup.

Loved this, although my husband didn't due to the fragrant nature of the soup.... which means more for me. I am making it for the second time tonight and am looking forward to it!

Superb tasty soup, highly recommended. I forgot to add the lemon and didn't bother with the liquidising as we prefer lumpy soup. Also used powdered coriander as no seeds in cupboard. Still made a great tasting, cheap and easy to prepare meal, though. I cut the parsnips to about 1 to 1.5 cm sq (about 1/2 inch sq), by the way.
