A delicious simple soup without too much heat, excellent as a wintery starter to a dinner party. The spice works wonderfully with the sweetness of the parsnips. 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
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
