Cream of Parsnip Soup with Lemon

I was gifted Meat Free Any Day for Christmas in 2014 and it is perhaps one of my most thumbed and well used cookbooks as it features food that you really want to eat and can easily make at home.  

Over the festive season I decided to make the Cream of Parsnip Soup with Lemon. I served it with homemade sourdough bread. 
Sarah Beattie's original recipe for this soup is made with cream, but I felt the soup once blitzed was naturally thick and creamy, so I decided to omit the addition of cream. I think this is the kind of soup you ant to be tucking into when you are feeling a bit under the weather or a little poorly.  It was a very warming soup with uplifting undertones of ginger and lemon.  If you want to make this soup, then please do check out Sarah Beatties Facebook Page, where you will find the recipe as well a number of other wonderful vegetarian and vegan recipes.
I have written about Sarah Beattie and her cookbooks before, so if you are interested please see here.  Below is a list of recipes that I have made from the Meat Free any Day cookbook including:

Leek and Brie Rostiflette
Parsnip Tamarind Curry
Tandoori Butterflied Aubergine
Winter Vegetable Tagine

  3. I actually like parsnips much more as soup than in any other form. This definitely does look like the sort of things I could eat loads if I've got the lurgy.I bet the lemon really makes a lovely addition.
