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.

I've just finished making this and I don't think any of this will make it into the freezer, it is fabulous. Good job it's low fat as I'm going to have trouble leaving it alone. I can't wait until tomorrow lunch to eat with bread straight out of the bread maker. I pretty much kept to the recipe (unusual for me) but didn't have plum toms so just used 3 ordinary instead. Definitely recommend.

I tried the soup as per the recipe and it was ok. I then adapted it slightly using equal amounts of parsnips and carrots, dry roasted the spices and ground them. To me it really brought out all the flavours of the spices as in the first batch all i could taste was the cumin.
