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.

Really tastey and easy to make. My parsnips took longer to cook than said so removed other veg and continued to roast - probably because i didnt cut them up small enough!! Ididnt have mustard seeds so used holegrain mustard instead - worked fine! Would definately recommend!

I didn't roast the parsnips, but did it all on the hob. It is delicious.
I will make it again.

Great soup. We thoroughly recommend it! Easy to make, good for the post-Christmas diet and very easy to eat!

Slight Variation: I didn't use the tomatoes and used my fresh turkey stock from christmas. (ok if you dont have vegetarians dining with you) and added fresh cream instead.
Fantastic! A real hit in our house on New Years Day.

My husband enjoyed it so much and he doesn't even eat Parsnips..well he does now! Also my 4 year old happily muched on them after they were roasted and cooling (before i put them in the food processor). The spices really lift the vegatable. Its a great side dish to accompany a roast or indian meal if you just roast in the spices and not turn into a soup.
Enjoy! We did...

Really tasty - add a few carrots to the roasting mix to give the final soup a warm orange glow. Yum.
