“Parsnips are often overlooked, but yummy winter vegetable. This soup can be made with spices like cardamon or curry, or herbs like marjoram or tarragon. Make it vegan with vegetable broth instead of chicken. This can be garnished with yogurt or sour cream and fresh herbs if desired. Serve with a green salad and garlic bread.”
