Parsnip Curry Turmeric Soup

14 Apr

Oh, hello daunting Bag-o-Parsnips.  I can barely figure out what to do with one of you, never mind a pile of you.  Another roast?  Another mash? Too boring, too….beige.

Is it possible that the parsnips are making everything around the beiger?  Are they boring-ifying my world??

Fortunately I discovered a sunny yellow box of turmeric in the back of my cupboard.  And next to it, some damn spicy curry powder.  To the Soup Machine!!  On y va, mes amies!!

Here’s the soup:

1 bag of parsnips.  Probably 6 parsnips, or like a pound or something.  Cut them into 1-inchish pieces.

1 glug of olive oil

1 yellow onion, chopped but don’t try too hard cuz we’re gonna blitz them with the immersion blender anyway.

4 teeth of garlick, squashed and diced.

1 bay leaf, or more if they’re dried out and decrepit like mine

2 teaspoons of turmeric

1 tablespoon curry powder

3 cups of veg stock (or whatever stock is on hand)

salt & pepper

Sautee down your onion and garlick a bit, add bay leaf, turmeric and curry until everything’s yellow.  Then add parsnips and stock.  Burble away for like 40 minutes. Add salt & pepper, adjust curry/turmeric as needed, and remove the bay leaf.  Then throw everything in a blender and marvel at how awesome your kitchen smells.

Starting to feel spicy....there should be a parsnip make-over montage here...
