Simple curried parsnip soup

Parsnips are a bit weird, they’re the paler, more floury and less attractive relative of carrots. They are nice roasted and in soups, that’s what I like them in, anyway. This is a simple parsnip soup, in my case made from a leftover parsnip.

1 parsnip
1 onion
1 clove garlic
1 mug water
1 mug stock
1 tsp curry paste
1 slug of cream
1 squeeze lemon

§    peel parsnip and cut into chunks
§    peel onion and cut into chunks
§    peel garlic clove
§    put chopped parsnip, onion and garlic clove into pan with water and stock
§    boil together for 10 minutes
§    add curry paste
§    cook for a minute
§    blend with hand blender to a smooth consistency
§    add a slug of cream and squeeze of lemon juice

makes 3 mugfuls or two bowlfuls

if you haven’t got a hand blender cut the veg up small or crush using a masher

If you’re like me you risk burning your mouth
