Carrot and Parsnip Soup with Cashews

January 23, 2014

I am on a roll with soups. As the polar vortex continues to deliver below freezing temps, it’s great to have fresh and delicious homemade soups on hand. This one is packed with vitamin A and the aromatic flavor of ginger. You can find ginger paste with the fresh herbs at the grocery store. If using fresh ginger- mince it and sauté during the last 2-3 minutes of sautéing the carrots and parsnips.

Recipe: serves 4-6

1 tbs oil
1 lb carrots
1/2 lb parsnips
1 can coconut milk
32 oz vegetable or chicken stock
2-3 tbs ginger paste
Salt and fresh ground pepper
Roasted Cashews

* peel and coarsely chop carrots and parsnips. Add oil to large stockpot. Over medium heat, sauté carrots and parsnips 8-10 minutes until vegetables soften and begin to brown. Add coconut milk and stock. Heat to a boil, reduce heat to med/low and simmer 20-30 minutes until veggies are tender. Purée soup–either with immersion blender or in small batches with regular blender. Stir in ginger and heat through.
