Soup’s are soooo easy to make, and a great way to have a low calorie or Points lunch or dinner.

This Curried Parsnip Soup is full of flavour. If you like it more spicy, then add some extra curry powder.

If you’re not keen on spice, just leave it out  – parsnips make a really tasty soup on their own!

This Curried Parsnip Soup is quite thick, so if you like it a bit thinner just add some extra stock or water.

I love a kitchen gadget, and top of my list at the moment is this Tower Hand Blender.

You can get this on amazon.

This particular hand blender has a masher attachment included, which is perfect for making our Creamy Mashed Potatoes

This Curried Parsnip Soup is gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian!

I like to serve extra garnishes on the top of soups to make them more interesting and also add texture. The little parsnip “croutons” are little crispy bits cooked in an airfryer which really add to the recipe. If serving as a main meal, why not use some of your healthy extra’s and have a cheese toastie with it?

  1. You guys have done it again, such a fab soup recipe, I love it and the fact that it’s gluten free. Also, y’all have much nicer parsnips than the pitiful ones in my Mississippi grocery store, lol! 🙂

  2. Would I be right in assuming that it should be 2 teaspoons of curry powder instead of 2 tablespoons? I made the soup today with 2 tablespoons of medium curry powder (as per the recipe) and it was very tasty, but nearly blew our heads off 😂. I had to tone it right down with lots of fat free fromage frais and we are used to spicy food. x

    1. I made this soup to_day and it was really nice and I used vegetable stock cubes I don’t think it made any difference to the taste thank you.
