“I recently read an article which claimed that roasting the vegetables before cooking in soup gives a wonderful depth of flavor quickly and easily. This particular recipe happens to combine two of my favorite vegetables, and the roasting enhances their natural sweetness, while mellowing it a bit. From Real Simple Magazine October 2007.”

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large roasting pan, combine the carrots, parsnips, onion, 3 T. oil, salt, and pepper. Spread the vegetables in an even layer and roast, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden brown, about 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, arrange bread slices on a baking sheet and brush with the remaining oil. During the last 10 minutes of roasting time, toast the slices until crisp.
  4. Transfer the vegetables to a blender and puree with 3 cups water, adding more water if necessary, 1/4 cup at a time, until smooth.
  5. Rewarm in a pot over medium-low heat, if necessary. Divide among individual bowls and serve with the olive oil toast.
