Ingredients you'll need

  • 800g parsnips

From your kitchen
  • ½ tbsp olive oil

Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Pour the soup back into the pan and warm through for 2-3 mins. Taste and add a little more salt and pepper if you think it needs it. Ladle into warm bowls and serve.

  • 2.

    Peel and finely chop the onion. Peel the parsnips and trim off the very ends. Finely chop them.

  • 3.

    Warm a pan for 1 min, then add ½ tbsp oil and the veg. Season with salt and pepper (use white pepper if you have it). Cover the veg with a piece of greaseproof paper. Pop on the lid.

  • 4.

    Sweat the veg over a very low heat for 15-20 mins till they’re soft but not browned – stir once or twice to check. While the veg sweat, peel and grate the garlic and ginger.

  • 5.

    Lift off the greaseproof paper. Stir in the garlic and ginger. Pour in the coconut milk and add 350ml boiling water.

  • 6.

    Stir to mix. Ladle the soup into a blender and blitz till smooth. No blender? Use a hand-held blender in the pan.
