Did not disappoint. Everyone loved it.

Easy to make and very tasty . I used ground cumin and coriander and tomatoe puree instead of fresh . Imagine the roast vegatables would be very good stirred through some cous cous for a veg meal.

This is a fab soup, the cumin seeds really give the soup that extra warmth....will certainly make this again.

This soup is fantastic, I got a blender for Christmas and it's the first thing I've used it for. I will be making gallons of the stuff! I used ground cumin instead of the seeds, and put a couple of squeezes of tomato puree in instead of using the fresh tomatoes. Heavenly!

We had this as a starter on Boxing Day and -- no hyperbole -- it is the best soup I have ever tasted. Brilliant for Christmas. The spices are unbelievable.

Great, rich flavour! Also cheap, quick, simple to make and hardly any washing up too (I used a hand blender as I hate washing my food processor). Think I'll be doing this one for years to come...

I really enjoyed this soup, a real hearty winter warmer. It took a few minutes to get the thicken right, I had to add more water as the parsnips are very fibrous. This is lovely filling soup, so it goes a long way.

Delicious! Although mustard and coriander seeds needed more liquidising.
