Parsnip Soup

Parsnip Soup

Parsnip soup is a delicious soup for winter. It can be enjoyed as a starter or a main course. Vegetables are very good for your health. This delicious parsnip soup I have made for my friendly guests during my chef carreer. I also enjoyed making the butternut soup too. I usually made soups as starters in the winter months, and other types of starters for summer time such as Springbok Carpaccio and many more. This parsnip soup is ideal for the vegetarians as well. Enjoy it with Naan bread on the side.
