750g parsnips

2 leeks

1.5l stock

salt and pepper to taste

oil for frying


Slice the leeks and fry them lightly in two tablespoons of oil in a large saucepan. Meanwhile slice the parsnips. Turn up the heat and add the parsnips. Fry quickly on a high heat for two minutes and then add the stock. Bring to the boil, and allow to simmer for 20 minutes until the parsnips are soft.

Using a stick or jug blender, blend the soup until it is creamy and white. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with some bread.

Alternatively, place all the ingredients including the seasoning into a crock pot and cook on a medium heat for two hours. Blend, or serve as a chunky vegetable soup.
