Instructions: Spiced root soup with crisp spiced onions


For the Soup:


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add chopped onions and minced garlic, and sauté until softened.


  1. Add diced carrots, parsnips, and sweet potato to the pot. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.


  1. Sprinkle ground cumin, coriander, turmeric, and cayenne pepper over the vegetables. Stir well to coat the vegetables with the spices.


  1. Pour in the vegetable broth, bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.


  1. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, carefully transfer the soup to a blender in batches and blend until smooth.


  1. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the spices if needed.


For the Crisp Spiced Onions:


  1. In a bowl, combine sliced onions, flour, ground cumin, paprika, and salt. Toss until the onions are coated evenly.


  1. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry the coated onions until they are golden brown and crispy.


  1. Remove the crispy onions from the pan and place them on a paper towel to drain excess oil.


To Serve:

Ladle the spiced root soup into bowls and top each serving with a generous handful of crisp spiced onions.
