A delicious simple soup, excellent as a starter to a dinner party. You may use a turnip or a sweet potato instead of a parsnip. Serve with crusty white bread.
Made it healthier. I used olive oil instead of butter, and instead of cream I added about 60g of soft goat's cheese. This lent just the right amount of creaminess without compromising on flavour, and saved loads on fat and calories! - 19 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
Oh, my! Wow! I never had parsnips before and I could not beleive how sweet and delicious this soup was. I made the following changes to lower the fat: a little olive oil in place of butter and nonfat milk in place of cream; it was delicious even with these alterations. I also added a little ginger and served it with notfat yogurt on top. - 13 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious soup, so easy to make, and even better to eat. I followed the recipe exactly, and have to say is probably the best soup I have ever made. I will definately be making this again, and will make it for guests without worrying it could go wrong. 5 Stars !!!! - 22 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
