Hi Everyone 

I’ve a little recipe for You all today. It’s a soup I made over on Snapchat. It’s a little bit different with a serious burst of flavours. My Dad gave me a few parsnips from the garden this evening. I used them in this zesty soup. Give it a try and let me know how You get on.


Love Maria 



2/3 parsnips diced

2 pink lady apples peeled & diced 
1 onion diced

1lt of veg stock (1 used 3 oxo cubes)

2 handfuls of spinach 

2 teaspoons turmeric,

2 teaspoons of paprika

2 teaspoons crushed chilli (optional)

1inch root ginger diced

2 cloves of garlic 

Zest & juice of a lime


Drizzle of rapeseed oil, teaspoon of real butter.


Heat up a lage saucepan & add the rapeseed oil & butter.

Fry off the garlic & chorizo for a minute adding in the onion, lime zest &juice, Ginger. Season with salt & pepper. 

Next add the diced parsnip and diced Apple and sauté for a few minutes.

Next add the turmeric,smoked paprika & chilli flakes, you can adjust these to your own liking. 

Slowly add the veg stock and leave to simmer. You can add the spinach at this stage and cover turn the heat down very low for about 20 minutes.

Leave to cool and blend. I use a hand blender it’s very handy for soups.
