Perfect Blend recipe

Irish Apple and Parsnip Soup

Parsnips and turnips were used extensively in rural Ireland to give variety to meals in the winter when green vegetables were in little supply. Surprisingly, this vegetarian soup is a wonderful balance of sweet apple flavors with parsnip overtones. I prefer to use Granny Smith apples, as they have a little more acidic flavor, which rounds out the richness of this soup. Serve soup on its own, or with a slice of Irish soda bread.
