For some reason I have a rather large quantity of parsnips in my fridge!


(Ok, I do know how they got there ... I ordered 2 parsnips from Tesco, not realising it meant 2 bags of parsnips :o ) ... ok, you can stop laughing over there :p )


Soooo ...... apart from roasting them, do any of you have any other tasty recipes that I can use them up in before they go too soft? Maybe even a soup, although I don't think I've ever tasted a parsnip soup before so not sure how that would turn out. I've already thought about half-cooking then freezing them but my freezer is busting at the seams atm :rolleyes:

    How about fusing the two dishes and make Roasted Parsnip Soup. (Don't laught - I ate it in a restaurant once and it was nice). I don't know how to make it but if I were to have a stab I would follow a recipe for potato soup and substitute pots for roast parsnips. HTH


    I once order what I thought was 1 BAG of potatoes from tesco and received one very sad and lonely ONE Potato. sniff sniff

    curried parsnip soup is lovely :)

    500g parsnips, sliced
    50g carrots, diced
    1 large leek, sliced
    1 onion, chopped
    1 chicken stock cube
    1 vegetable stock cube
    1 tbsp curry paste
    1 tsp cumin powder
    1 tbsp half fat creme fraiche or cream
    Seasoning
    Enough water to cover the vegetables


    Bring to the boil and simmer for 30-35 mins or until the vegetables are tender. Liquidise until smooth along with the creme fraiche. Add extra water to achieve the consistency you prefer

    or, if you have the freezer space, you could always wash, peel and chop them and then freeze them until you are ready to use them

  • Curried parsnip soup sounds yummy!!! :D

    I also have all the ingredients listed (glad I saved some creme fraiche earlier) so I'm going to be making some tomorrow! I did wonder if something like cumin might compliment the parsnips so I'm pleased to see it in the recipe :)

    Great idea!!!

    I made a Roasted Butternut Squash & Tomato soup recently so could use the same method for the parsnips. It was absolutely delicious and if anyone wants the recipe I'll post it. Also very low-fat and healthy ;)

    Make a vegetable curry - just add onions and any odds and ends with some tomatoes and curry spices . I did this in the slow cooker and it was lovely.

    crisps (use a peeler to get them thin) or chips.
    Nice to save.
  • I love parsnips, sometimes I add them to casseroles or soup. They are nice boiled and mashed, but my favourite has to be
    peeled, rolled in honey and sesame seeds, then roasted in the oven
