Two-Tone Parsnip & Pumpkin Soup

Hi everyone! Hope 2014 is treating you well! Mine has been great so far but one things I’m missing is SNOW! Where is the freaking snow?!? I am one of these weird people who prefer to jump in the snow than lie in the sun and I am utterly unhappy I have not made one snow ball so far. Grey rainy days, on the other hand, I have seen too much of those. My remedy? Colorful soups!

parsnip and pumpkin soup

INGREDIENTS

1kg butternut pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and chopped into chunks
3 parsnips, peeled and cut into 2cm slices
1.5l vegetable stock
2 shallots, finely chopped
4 tsp olive oil
Salt & pepper

METHOD
For the pumpkin soup, heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add one chopped shallot, reduce heat to medium and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add pumpkin and 750ml vegetable stock. Bring to boil and cook for about 20 minutes till vegetables are tender. Transfer the soup into a food processor and blitz until it’s smooth. Add some water if the soup is too thick.

For the parsnip soup, heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add one chopped shallot, reduce heat to medium and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add parsnips and 750ml vegetable stock. Bring to boil and cook for about 20 minutes till vegetables are tender. Transfer the soup into a food processor and blitz until it’s smooth. Add some water if the soup is too thick.

In a soup cup, gently pour the two hot soups simultaneously. Season with salt & pepper.

Have a lovely week!

    Oh!!! This is a lovely soup!! I’m sure if I try, two colors would mix, but, even with that, it sounds really delicious!!!

    And I love parsnip cream, so this is a great recipe. I can prepare on Sunday and then eat during the week with lots of pepper, yum!!!
    This week I make this, but it’s time of… tomato soup!!

    Have a nice day, Marta!!!
