  • Very Good
    The only change I made was to add an onion to the vegetables. It's a bit on the sweet side, thanks to the parsnips and apples, but rich and velvety even without the addition of butter, cream or potato! I will definitely make this again and add a bit of cumin. Delicious. - 3/16/11

    Thanks, Ellen. Your idea to add cumin is great. I think that would add a nice complexity that would compliment the apples well.

    This recipe made a lovely smooth soup, no cream necessary! The hand blender worked quickly through the soft vegetables and apples.I added cumin, curry powder, crushed coriander and fresh ground pepper. MMMMMM good. - 2/10/10
