Oooh what a lovely aumtuny recipe! I would be tempted to devour those lovely roasted veggies before I got the blending part though!

Mmm, I love roasted parsnips & carrots together--the soup looks great!

Your soup looks perfect, creamy blended soups are my favourite!

MeShell said...

Yum!!! that looks great. What a lovely colour!

It would take serious effort not to eat the heck out of that soup... (or as nicola said... the veggies pre souping!)

rita said...

Yumz, this soup would have been perfect for today's weather :)

Hmm, I have carrots and parsnips to use up, so I think I'll have to make this soup over the weekend.

C said...

That looks really good - I could eat the veggies just by themselves! :-)

Mandee said...

I usually don't like cooked carrot,s I find them too sweet but I'd give this a go just because it would give me a reason to buy and cook parsnip, which I hardly ever do

veggiev said...

Oh, great idea! I tried parsnips a couple of times last year, and I just couldn't get into them. But a blended soup is brilliant! Why did I think of that ?!
