Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I love parsnips and it happens to be one of my favorite root vegetables. So, I knew I would love this soup and after tasting it, I was a happy woman. I did use less butter (about 2 T) to cut down on calories, and used a bit more of the curry powder. Delicious. Thank you, Marramamba, for sharing!
