A delicious, sweet parsnip and apple soup, loaded with lentils and roasted vegetable crisps
Guys, it’s happened. We’re 3 days away form the end of our vegan advent calendar and I’m SICK!!! I think I knew this was coming for a while. I’ve been working like CRAZY to make this happen for the last few weeks and I’ve known I’ve been exhausted for a while… But don’t worry, all the posts will still be coming!
It’s no surprise I love me some soup. Recently I’ve made this roasted garlic, leek and tomato soup, and this 5 ingredient pea and mint soup. In these cold season, I just don’t think you can beat a nice warm, comforting soup.
By combining parsnip and apple together, you have two quite sweet dominant flavours. But add in some onion, garlic, vegetable stock and a touch of curry powder for good measure, and you’re left with a soup that encompasses that wonderful sweet/salty combo we all love.
However, for me a soup is not complete until it’s crowned with toppings. in this case, I wanted something hearty and earthy (hence the black lentils) and some bright, crisps flavour, that wasn’t croutons. So I tried out vegetable crisps and Oh. My. Gosh. Winner.
A bowl of this just before Christmas (or just after to use up any leftover parsnips), will warm you through to your bones, which we all need right now.
