Winter warmers πŸ‚

On cold wet days I like nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa with a big bowl of soup.

There is something very comforting about it, especially if your full of cold and you want a quick lunch or dinner.
My kids love soups and they love my homemade soup best 😊
Full of fresh veggies, the smell fills the house and the kids fill their tummies…


A quick recipe for Spicy Parsnip Soup 
4 table spoons of butter

1 medium sized ouion chopped

1 medium sized potato chopped 

500g of parsnips chopped 

1/2 a tea spoon of curry powder 

1/2 a tea spoon of ground cumin 

1/2 a tea spoon of ground coriander 

1.5 litres of chicken or vegetable stock 

Double cream to drizzle 
Firstly melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat then fry the onion and potatoes until softened.

Add the parsnips and cook for another 2 minutes. 
Add your spices, stir for a further minute, then add your stock.

Reduce the heat and cover, leave to simmer for 25-30 minuets.

Remove from the heat and blend to your preferred consistency.
Add cream (if using) 

When I’m making soup for all the family I tend to double up on all ingredients just to make sure I fill all the tummy’s and we always have crusty bread and butter because.. well it would be criminal not to. 
Happy cooking and enjoy 
Thanks for reading
