Roasted Parsnip and Celeriac Soup with earthy caraway, marjoram, thyme and coriander and topped with toasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
Get something warm and hearty inside you. And, shudder.
This dish will obliterate any belief that vegan food can’t be super nourishing
- When it’s cold and miserable outside and a wholesome dish that’ll warm your innards is much needed
- When you’re feeling fuzzy and need some coherency to your tastebuds which will come to the fore
- When you’re lying your sofa and need to curl up and watch the World go by
Roasted Parsnip and Celeriac Soup was inspired when watching the rain beating against my window and fancying a warm soothing dish to appease my frenzied mind.
This Soup is vegan and paleo.
