Parsnips have their own sweet flavour unique to them, I smell a raw mango in cooked parsnips. Its good in soups and also to accompany your roast. Parsnips are very common winter vegetable you can use in different types of cooking. This is one of them.

This soup will serve 6 people.

Get two parsnips and peel and wash them thoroughly. Then chop them roughly.

Peel and wash two potatoes and chop roughly.

You will need one  and and several cloves of garlic roughly chopped with enough salt and pepper to taste as well as any kind of a herb to your liking. I used mixed herbs.

Add butter in to a pan and add the onion and garlic with herbs.

Add the potatoes and parsnip and saute several minutes. Measure the water from the soup bowls the amount you need.  Add one less bowl. (If you are serving 7 add six cups)

I pressure cooked. You can slow cook or cook on simmer until tender. Add the soup in to a mixer and puree the soup. Add cream and puree soup again. (I didn’t add any cream ad I found it that good and creamy)

Hi, I am Menaka. I was a teacher for 18 years and after migrating to Australia accidentally I found an amazing lady called " Mary" who directed me to become a chef.I studied 3 years while working and became a qualified chef. After I studied about baking and hospitality management. My son is very enthusiastic in video editing and wanted me to start recording my cooking.Thats the beginning of you tube channel "The Culinary Corner" I am a full time employee. I record all the videos by my self. As a child I started helping and cooking with my granny and I used to experiment and trying various cooking styles. That led me in this path very smoothly. I still try to experiment and adjust recipes to move with this busy and globalised world.
