Creamy Parsley root Soup

 

But first - what is a parsley root ? 

The parsley root is slightly more slender than the parsnip. Like the parsnip, the parsley root is a pale colour and similar to the carrot in appearance. Parsley root’s taste is as a combination of “celeraic and carrot with hints of celery, turnip and parsley leaf.”

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 Parsley Roots, topped, tailed and chopped but no need to peel
  • 5 small white onions, peeled and sliced
  • 2-3 small potatoes, scrubbed and chopped, no need to peel
  • 2 small apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • Chicken stock approx 800ml
  • A couple of dollops of creme fraiche

Method

  • Sauté the sliced onions in a few teaspoons of olive oil for about 5 minutes until they are translucent and starting to colour. 
  • Add in the parsely root, potatoes and apple and fry for a few minutes. 
  • Pour over the chicken stock and simmer until everything is tender, about 15-20 minutes. 
  • Blitz with the creme fraiche, taste and season, adding more stock if necessary. 
  • Serve with crusty bread. 

This would also be delicious topped with a drizzle more creme fraiche, some toasted nuts, fried sage or truffle oil! Enjoy.
