Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it. Charles Dudley Warner

Ugg the weather outside is frightful … so I have been craving homely foods. So I decided to make some soup. I fancied something a little bit different parsnip and ginger soup it was. It was pretty simple:

Two carrots

500g of parsnips

Two sticks of celery

Two medium onions

A thumb sized piece of ginger

Two stock cubes dissolved in water. 

Chop all the veg and pop into a heavy based pan. Fry until the carrots start to soften. Add the stock and bring to the boil. Once boiling turn down to a simmer and simmer until the veg is soft. Once soft turn off and allow to cool. Then blend. That’s it!

Serve with crusty bread and if you like heat add a few chilli flakes. 


Hopefully the weather will get better soon!
