Some parsnips arrived in my organic veg box from Riverford and then some more arrived. I like parsnips but I’m not wild about them. I enjoy them roasted and caramelised in the oven with other root veg. They make a great mashed contrast layer for a nut roast and come in very handy for a big pot of soup. Parsnip Soup seemed to me to be what was called for right now – real comfort food – hearty and filling. Here’s my recipe.
