Tasted lovely - worth the time it takes to chop and roast the parsnips. I found that the recipe made more than four portions.

Used cherry tomatoes instead of plum, and didnt have any lemon juice....but still tasted delicious! Really enjoyed and recommend it.

Wonderful! I Didn't bother with the oven part, instead I just put everything into a big pot on the hob (didn't add any oil - I'm on a diet!!) and boiled all the ingredients, then simmered for an hour, then used a hand blender directly in the pot to make the soup all smooth and yummy - delicious and very easy!

This was pretty good soup, but I did find that the seeds remained as little hard surprises after blending, and if I made it again I would grind them a little with a pestle and mortar before roasting.

A lovely soup. Next time I will use ground spices as I found the seeds hard to liquidise with a hand blender. Also, the soup was quite sweet, probably the addition of a chili would counter that a bit. Easy to make.

We loved this soup and have had it a few times now.

Well, having read fabulous reviews, I was looking forward to this soup. How disappointed we were. I found this dish bland and tasteless. I wont be making this again.

This smelt delicious but for some reason after 4 mouthfulls, i just couldnt eat anymore, it was just too sweet for me and a bit sickly. It must just be me as I can see everyone else loves it. I made it again this week following a different recipe using 3 parnsips, one leek, one onion, bunch of coriander, 2 pints veg stock, a tablespoon of curry powder and one pot of whipping cream, personally I much preferred that one, mildly spicy but not too overpowering or too sweet.

This is a really delicious soup - spice it up with sweet chilli sauce and serve with parmesan tuiles - yum!

Delicious, roasted everything and then transferred to a saucepan with the stock and used a hand blender to blend it all together and served. Unlike other parsnip recipes, you could really taste the parsnips as the spices weren't too overpowering.

Just made this first time today. Missed out plum tomatoes but made stock with passata, red wine (only a drop!), water. Yummy!!!! Also added carrots. Very warming colour, tastes great and easy lunch for work with crusty bread or Ryvita.

I have tried many many different soup recipes and this is easily the best and nicest tasting yet, I thought the parsnips would be overpowering but the ingredients all go perfectly and it is well worth the extra effort of roasting the veg first...delicious!

Needs extra stock and lots of blending but delicious, warming and filling at either lunch or tea time.

I wouldn't call it "Spicy" but it is a great soup. Will definitely be making again.
