I love parsnips!  If you are not sure what they are, they are those things in the vegetable section that look like giant white carrots.  They taste like a combo of carrots, parsley, and celery to me and I think they are super yummy!  

I've also kinda been obsessed with white food right now.  So clean and pretty 🙂

Serves 4

What you'll need:

1/2 stick of butter (real or vegan)

1 medium onion, diced

1 lb. parsnips, peeled and sliced

3 medium size red potatoes, peeled and diced

5-6 cups of water

Salt to taste

What you'll do:

Melt the butter in a large pot and add in the diced onions and a pinch of salt.  Saute until the onions get pretty soft.  Add in the sliced parsnips and saute until they get a little soft.  This takes about 10 minutes.  Next add in the potatoes, toss together and add in 5 cups of water.  Bring to a simmer and let simmer for about 30 minute or until the potatoes are fork tender.  

Working in batches, blend the soup in the blender until smooth.  Return to the pot and season more with salt and add more water if you need to thin it out.  I finish the soup with a drizzle of tasty olive oil and some pan fried shallots.
