Get Ready for Soup Season
Hearty soups from, pea, cheese & onion and a lovely spiced parsnip to keep you going through the colder months.
Whatever the season and no matter how bare the cupboards are, most of us have a bag of peas knocking around in the freezer. This soup couldn’t be simpler or quicker to make. To make it into a more substantial meal, I recommend serving it with a poached egg. The runny egg yolk also helps to give the soup a little richness.
This soup is very rich and filling, so you only need a modest portion. I serve this with some brown butter and crispy sage, but for a slightly lighter topping it would also be lovely with some apple batons and some finely chopped chives. For a really comforting supper, serve with a cheese and chutney toastie.
Sweet earthy parsnips are a great base for spices. Feel free to get creative with your spicing – like it a little spicier? Add a bit of chilli powder in addition to the fresh chilli. Like it a little milder? Skip the chilli altogether and consider adding a little coconut milk to mellow out the flavour. You could also use a curry paste instead of dried spices.
