Sweet & Retro Parsnip & Apple Soup

This time of year always makes me get back into the kitchen and cook! One of my favourite things to cook is soup as it is so healthy and nutritious, whilst being low on calories (as long as there's no cream involved!)

Today I got a bag of parsnips for just 50p, they needed using up, so I made a Parsnip & Apple soup which was really delicious.  Here's the recipe if you would like to try it:

Serves 6 (you can freeze)

1 tbpsn olive oil in a large saucepan
600gm parnips peeled and chopped into chunks
2 medium onions chopped
600gm eating apples (or 3 medium ones)
1 litre of chicken or vegetable stock (I used 1  chicken and 1 vegetable Oxo cube)
150ml milk to add at the end

Pop the onions and parsnips into the pan with the oil and gently fry for around half an hour on a low heat. This will caramelise the vegetables making them nice and sweet.  

Pour in the stock and bring to the boil, now turn down the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.  Blend the soup, and add pepper to taste.

Stir in the milk, and serve.  We had ours with poppy seed crackers - delicious!

This soup has a lovely light, sweet flavour. You could make the whole thing in one of our enamel pans like the pastel one above :O) Take a look at our current stock of vintage enamelware here.
