Spicy Parsnip Soup

This is a great winter warmer, especially if you've got a cold.


  • 1 tbsp ghee or butter
  • 4 parsnips, washed and cut into 2cm pieces.
  • 2 dried chilis, finely chopped
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 nodules of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 650ml vegetable stock
  • 150ml milk
  • 40g fresh coriander, finely chopped


  1. Melt the ghee/butter in a large pan.
  2. Add the parsnips, chilis, onion, ginger and coriander seeds to the pan. Fry on a medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Add the garam masala, stock and milk.
  4. Bring to a simmer.
  5. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Just before it's ready to serve, add the fresh coriander and use a blender to blend it all together.
  7. Serve in a bowl with some crusty white bread on the side.
Serves 3 to 4.
