Curried Parsnip and Potato Soup

My last soup recipe that featured potato seemed to go down well with you guys, judging by my stats. With that in mind, I thought I would post up another one. This time parsnip is on the menu. I love the sweetness of parsnip and the mild curry powder adds a really nice kick. This makes for an ideal meal to have on those cold Spring evenings, whilst you’re dreaming of indian summers!

As this soup is vegetarian I am linking it up to Tinned Tomatoes ‘Meat Free Mondays’.

      Me too!!! I eat so much soup. Curried parsnip isn’t one I’ve tried making myself though so I’ll have to give this a try.
