Slurp, Slurp Soup

I made the parsnip and leek soup, but didn't bother with the spice. I thought it would be a shame to hide the flavour of the vegetables. Peeling the parsnips really brought the lovely smell out and the leeks being cooked in butter were lucky to get as far as the soup pot!

The parsnips were huge so, it's produced a rather thick soup and needs extra water adding as I heat it for my lunches this week, but it really is delicious. 
Consisting of:
  2 Parsnips
  4 Leeks cooked in butter till soft
  1 litre Vegetable stock
  Salt and lots of Pepper

I do like a simple recipe! But please don't believe my mousemat at work!!


  1. mmm, scoffing it right now and it is delish :-)

  2. Sounds good - did you use some of the green bits if the leeks as the soup looks to have a greenish tint?

    1. Yes, quite a lot of green went in. I don't like to waste it. It's in the shared kitchen at work in a plastic milk carton. I wrote 'I am soup!' on it as it definitely has a greenish hue and someone would think it's gone off!
