Instructions: Spicy roasted parsnip soup


  1. Preheat the Oven:

   – Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).


  1. Prepare the Parsnips:

   – Peel and chop the parsnips into evenly-sized pieces. Place them on a baking sheet.


  1. Roast the Parsnips:

   – Drizzle the parsnips with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then season with salt and black pepper. Toss to coat evenly.

   – Roast in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the parsnips are golden and tender. Stir halfway through.


  1. Sauté Onion and Garlic:

   – In a large pot, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.

   – Add diced onions and sauté until translucent. Add minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.


  1. Add Spices:

   – Stir in the ground cumin, ground coriander, smoked paprika, and cayenne pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.


  1. Combine Roasted Parsnips:

   – Add the roasted parsnips to the pot and mix well with the spices and onions.


  1. Blend with Broth:

   – Pour in the vegetable broth, scraping the bottom of the pot to release any flavorful bits. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for about 5-10 minutes.


  1. Blend the Soup:

   – Using an immersion blender or transferring in batches to a regular blender, puree the soup until smooth.


  1. Add Coconut Milk:

   – Stir in the coconut milk (or cream) and continue to simmer for an additional 5 minutes.


  1. Adjust Seasoning:

    – Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. If you prefer more heat, add extra cayenne pepper.


  1. Serve:

    – Ladle the soup into bowls, and garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley if desired.
