The instruction how to make Curried parsnip soup

  1. For the parsnips, preheat the oven to 220C. Spread pieces on a baking tray, toss with oil and roast for 30 minutes, turning once or twice, until tender. Toss with honey and roast for a further 5 minutes or until crisp and caramelised.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds, curry powder and turmeric and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the leek and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, then add parsnip and toss well to coat.
  3. Add hot water or stock, season, then simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes until parsnips are tender. Cool for 5 minutes, then whiz in a blender, in batches, until smooth and creamy. (Add a dash of cream if you like.)
  4. Return the soup to the pan with the curry leaves and heat through over low heat. Divide among bowls and serve topped with honey-roasted parsnips.
