Carrot, parsnip and ginger soup

Nothing makes you feel better on a miserable winter day than a warming bowl of soup. Adding ginger helps digestion, while a dollop of natural yogurt gives you a welcome top-up of probiotics, the ‘good’ bacteria we all need for a happy stomach

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large or 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 500g carrots, roughly chopped
  • 500g parsnips, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric, optional
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 40g root ginger, chopped=
  • about 1.4 litres vegetable stock - use gluten-free if required
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 12 tbsp natural yogurt, to serve
  • coriander leaves, to serve
For the crispy ginger (optional)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp shredded root ginger
  • ½ tbsp nigella seeds (or cumin or mustard seeds)

Step by step

Get ahead
The soup keeps for 3-4 days in the fridge or can be frozen.
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or casserole. Add the onions and a pinch of salt, and cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat until starting to soften. Add the carrots, parsnips, ground spices and ginger and stir well to coat. Cook gently, covered, for 10 minutes, making sure the spices don’t catch and burn. This helps to bring out the full flavour of the vegetables.
  2. Add the stock, bring to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are completely tender. Blend the soup until smooth, then adjust the seasoning and consistency, adding lemon juice to taste and extra water if the soup is too thick. Reheat if necessary.
  3. If making the crispy ginger, heat the oil in a small frying pan and fry the ginger until it’s starting to turn golden and crisp. Add the seeds and cook for another 15-30 seconds.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with a swirl of yogurt, coriander leaves, and the crispy ginger and seeds if using.
