Parsnip, Potato & Carrot Soup with Parsnip Chips

These wonderful winter root vegetables have slightly sweet flavors that make this hearty soup super tasty. Often overlooked and frequently underappreicated, root vegetables are among the most delicious specimens. They’re versatile, inexpensive, and brimming with healthy vitamins and minerals. The parsnip chips are thinly sliced, fried parsnips that when sprinkled over the soup add an incredibly delightful crunch. It’s pure food joy in a bowl!

  • 1 tsp EVOO
  • 2 ½ cups onion chopped (I like to use Vidalia onions)
  • 3 cups parsnip chopped
  • 2 potatoes chopped (I used Yukon Gold spuds)
  • 2 ½ cups carrot chopped
  • 1 bulb of garlic minced (yes, it’s a lot of garlic but it’s so good!)
  • 1 TB thyme or any herb you like
  • 6-8 cups veggie broth depending on your preference for thick soup
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • Toppings:
  • 2-3 tsp avocado oil for frying parsnip and carrot chips
  • ½ cup parsnip cut into 1/8 “slices

  • Heat 1 tsp EVOO in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.
  • Add the onion, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add broth, chopped potatoes, parsnip, and carrots.
  • Bring the soup mix to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
  • Depending upon how thick or thin you like soup, you can add more broth.
  • Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes to cool before blending.
  • Place soup mixture into a blender; process until smooth.
  • Or use a hand immersion blender to blend to the consistency you want.
  • Stir in salt and pepper.
  • Topping Instructions:
  • Heat avocado oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add parsnip slices; cook 5 minutes, until lightly browned, turning occasionally.
  • Drain on chips on a paper towel.
  • Sprinkle parsnip chips and chives over soup.
  • Enjoy!


The veggies can be chopped into any size. The smaller they are the less time needed to simmer.
I always double or triple the garlic in recipes. The bulb of garlic was not overbearing but you can use less if garlic isn’t your thing.
Depending upon how thin or thick you like soup, you can use 6 or 8 cups of veggie broth.

Spicy Spud Balls

These spicy spud balls are packed full of flavor with fresh herbs, spices, oats and red potatoes. They are incredibly delicious and nutritious with a nice crunchy outside. I’ve made many versions of balls and burgers using beans and grains but never potatoes. So why not try it! I can honestly say they were way better than I’d expected them to be and a big hit with my taste tester. We enjoyed eating them with pasta, salad and just by themselves with sauce.

Raspberry Jam Bars

This recipe is a one-bowl wonder that comes together in minutes and can be served warm, chilled or at room temp. Sweet, tart and gooey, these raspberry jam bars are a crowd pleaser!
While the top and bottom layers are made from the same batter, they bake up differently. The bottom is soft and chewy while the top is crisp and crunchy.
The bars can be enjoyed for breakfast with tea, for dessert or anytime you feel like treating yourself! *This recipe is so versatile. You can use different flours, nuts and jams. Experiment and mix it up!

Sesame Tempeh Buddha Bowl

A Buddha bowl can mean different things to different people but is usually a plant based dish, served in a single bowl. It can consists of small portions of whole grains, plant proteins and vegetables, topped with seeds, nuts and a sauce. It’s a nourishing meal that’s just little bites of everything. It can be conjugated to the tune of the different ingredients you choose or have on hand.
