Featured Two Whales recipe for November 2017
Curried Parsnip Soup
Parsnips have an interesting, slightly exotic flavour which is a perfect match with Indian spices. You can serve a yoghurt and cucumber raita and naan bread alongside this fragrant, creamy soup or stay western and pair it with a crusty baguette.
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
1 tbsp medium curry powder
1 tsp ground coriander
2lb/1kg parsnips, peeled and chopped
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
2 ltr/8 cups vegetable stock
Salt to taste
Heat oil and saute onion for a few minutes, add garlic, ginger and spices, stir and cook for another minute then add
remaining ingredients. Simmer until parsnips are soft, then puree, season to taste and serve garnished with a little cooked rice, fresh cilantro or yoghurt.
