As I write this post the wind is blowing a gale outside, the leaves are all but gone from the trees and the rain hasn’t stopped for weeks (literally!). This soup is perfect for this weather – it’s so earthy and warming and soothing and of course delicious and nourishing. The seedy mix gives it an added omega-3 crunch too (mix up a bit extra and it’s delicious added to salads).
Celeriac and Parsnip Soup with Seed Mix
From 'Get the Glow' by Madeleine Shaw
Heat the coconut oil or butter in a large saucepan over a low heat for 1 minute, then add the onion and a pinch of salt and sauté for 5 minutes.
Add the parsnip and celeriac and sauté for 3 minutes, then pour in the broth or stock, coconut milk and another pinch of salt.
Bring to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes before blending with a hand blender.
Mix the seeds and chilli flakes in bowl and scatter them over the soup when you're ready to eat.
