Curried Parsnip Soup

I haven't taken part in No Croutons Required (NCR) for a few months.  It's Lisa's turn to host and also her birthday, she loves spicy food and has asked for spicy soups and salads this month.

There was a special offer on the veggies at the supermarket last week and parsnips featured in the offer so I ended up with a couple of packs of parsnips and decided to make a curried parsnip soup.

Curried Parsnip Soup
600g Parsnips peeled and chopped 
1 onion, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1tbsp Pataks Jalfrezi curry paste
1 litre vegetable stock
salt & pepper
250ml milk or cream
chopped parsley

Heat the oil in a large saucepan or pressure cooker, add the choppped onion and cook gently until transparent.  Add the curry paste and cook for about a minute, add the parsnips and cook in the oil and curry paste for about 5 minutes until coated and slightly browned.

Add the vegetable stock and seasoning and cook until the parsnips are soft.

Let the soup cool slightly, either liquidise or use a stick blender to puree the soup.  Add the milk or cream and adjust the seasoning to taste. 

Serve sprinkled with parsley.

This is a very simple soup, but was really delicious.  I've never made it with curry paste before but as I always have some in the fridge, I will definitely do so again.  It seemed to add a depth of flavour as well as a little heat to the soup.

I managed a NCR today for the first time in ages!

I also have parsnips and spice - but a very different soup!

Mmmm....I love this soup. I think I'll add some coconut milk as coconut milk and curry is a great match. This would make a nice lunch for me :D

Parsnips are one of my fave veggies but I've never tried it in a soup before. What a great idea, sounds and looks so tasty and comforting.

I usually make the original recipe from Jane Grigson but I like to add a little fresh coriander. Such a good soup!
