Parsnip look like carrots and taste similar to carrots but have a slightly different woody, roasted flavor and notes similar to parsley. When you combine the two in a pureed soup, you may not even notice the parsnips at first. However, after a couple bites you’ll start to pick up on the roasted and herb components that make it complex without any extra work. Y-A-Y. ?

I topped this soup off with walnuts and sage browned in a bit of butter to add some texture and richness. It also round out the meal to something more complete which I appreciate because who has time to make two dishes for a single dinner?
