If you looked up 'warming, comforting soup' in the dictionary, there would be a picture of this beside it! UNBELIEVABLE! (Leftovers? Bake a potato and top with good cheddar and some steaming hot soup! [seriously, it sounds weird but it works!!])

I love this soup, especially in the autumn/winter, its a great standby when you have parsnips lying around.
