Soup Maker Recipe: Curried Parsnip and Spring Onion Soup

I find parsnips to be a bit blah on their own.  Ok, so they’re not so bad when they’re roasted, but if I’m making soup, I don’t have time for that, so the addition of herbs or spices is needed here, for it to be palatable.

This version of curried parsnip soup relies on sauteed spring onions to bring out a great taste that compliments the parsnips themselves.  Remember, you can also make these in a pot, but might need some extra liquid due to boil off that doesn’t happen in a soup maker.  Also remember to stir well.  If you’d rather not have a green tinge to your soup, leave out the spring onion stems and add more bulbs or onions.

    Loved this super simple recipe Lesley. Parsnips are so underrated, brilliantly flavoursome. Your soup boosted our Boxing Day left overs.

    Kitchen real estate is always the issue, but we love our soup maker so much so, we’ve bought our eldest one for Christmas. This splendid soup was the first recipe we tried together. Bonus, it served 6 adults within half an hour of me starting peeling.

    As suggested perfect to revive our spirits after the lashing we’ve had with winter storms in 2019, we grow our own parsnips but our local superstore was giving away bags of veg after the Christmas before they passed their dates – waste not want not!


  2. Just bought a soup maker and this recipe was the second soup I’ve make and tasted fantastic! Thank you.

  3. I’ve just bought a soup maker and have been looking out for some inspiring recipes. I love parsnips so was really pleased to stumble across this recipe – I can’t wait to make it now! Thanks 🙂

  4. Following your recipes from Italy, thank you very much for sharing them, they’re brilliant and tastier than those on the instruction manual.

    We can’t find parsnips quite easily over here so I bought them in Glasgow this morning before departing. The guys at the airport security checks must have had a laugh
