Celery & parsnip soup

Celery & parsnip soup


  • 60ml olive oil
  • ½ bunch celery chopped
  • 2 parsnips (about 450g) peeled & chopped
  • 1 bulb fennel
  • 1 small brown onion
  • 1 clove of garlic thinly sliced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1.5lt stock
  • Cream (optional)


Sweat celery, fennel, parsnip, onion, garlic and bay leaves
until soft and just starting to colour. Add stock and
simmer gently until vegetables are soft (about 30min).
Blitz with a hand blender. For a smoother soup you can
pass through a sieve. Return to a clean pan and season.
You could add cream at this point if you wish.

Serve hot with crusty bread and butter.
