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.
