Parsnip Pick-Me-Up Soup

Updated: Feb 3, 2021

Another great tasting super healthy soup to boost your immune system. I love the taste of Parsnips and added with the other veggies it creates a thicker more filling soup.

I’m trying to increase my daily vegetable intake by having one of these homemade soups every day.

Parsnips are also a great source of fibre and vitamins C and K, along with the other veggies this packs in the goodnes.

Serves Two

  • Two large Parsnips, roughly chopped.

  • One large carrot, roughly chopped.

  • One smallish Savoy cabbage, quartered.

  • Half a small head of Broccoli.

  • 500ml water.

  • One clove of garlic.

  • One Tbsp Olive Oil.

  • Two tsp of dried Sage.

  • Two tsp of dried Parsely.

  • Two tsp of dried Thyme.

  • One Tbsp cream.


  • Fry the Carrot and Parsnip in the Olive Oil for 5-10 minutes.

  • Add all the other ingredients, except the cream, mix well.

  • Bring to the boil then cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until veggies have softened.

  • Transfer to blender and blitz until smooth.

  • Pour back into pan to reheat.

  • Serve with an optional swirl of Olive Oil and cream.
