  • 25g butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 450g parsnip, chopped
  • 250g dessert apples (Bramley?), peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1.2l vegetable stock
  • 70ml single cream


    1. Melt the butter in a large pan, then add the onion and garlic for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add apples and parsnips for a further 3-4 minutes. Add coriander and stir for 30 seconds.
    2. Pour in stock, season well and bring to the boil. Reduce heat , cover and simmer for 25 minutes.
    3. Remove from the heat, wait for it to cool then blend it in the food processor until almost smooth (so as to keep a little texture)
    4. Return soup to the pan, stir in the cream and reheat gently, but don't boil.
    5. Serve straight away with a crusty loaf

Was so lovely!! Very sweet, would add slightly less apple if looking for a less sweet taste - didn't add the cream as didn't feel it was necessary :) also not confident those quantities would stretch to serving 5 people. Wonderful recipe, thank you!

Delicious soup! It had a beautiful flavour and I didn't add cream as didn't feel it particularly needed it. Very popular with family and friends and I've had several requests for the recipe.

Delish, I added crème fraiche instead of cream. Very moreish. I would never of put parsnips and apples together, but it was stunning.

Worked well. If you're going to freeze, add the cream when you reheat.
