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!!!

  2. I knew it was possible with puddings, but I never thought you could pour two types of soup in one bowl without them mixing. It definitely looks (and sounds) amazing! xo

  3. Amazing! Love the idea of having two soups into one bowl. Looks so pretty :)

  4. Love the idea! That’ll look awesome at a dinnerparty…
