How to prepare Curried Sweet Potato Parsnip Soup

Don’t worry at all. It just can’t be easier! It requires only 3 simple steps.

In my kitchen, I prefer water-based cooking techniques such as steaming and boiling. They are definitely the healthiest, unlike grilling, roasting or frying.

Higher cooking temperatures can trigger chemical reactions among food components, resulting in the production of dangerous substances, such as heterocyclic amines or advanced glycation end products. They are really harmful to your body and can cause DNA damage and cancer.

Step 1: Water-saute the chopped onion with the curry powder for several minutes. The curry releases its fantastic aroma and color. It is so inviting! 

Step 2: Add the other vegetables, chopped into several large pieces. Pour water enough to cover the veggies well and boil until fork tender.

Step 3: Now all you need to do is to put everything in a blender and voila your soup is ready!

useful tips

  • You can adjust the thickness of your soup by adding more or less vegetable broth or water.
  • In my family, we love soups and often eat them as a main dish. So you can serve it with cooked buckwheat, chickpeas, even rice, or steamed veggies like broccoli.
  • It also combines perfectly with a loaf of whole wheat bread or croutons. You can try it with my delicious vegan Easy No Knead Einkorn Bread.

    This recipe sounds great. I’m going to try it but I plan on using vegetable broth instead of water. I find it adds a lot more flavor to my vegan soups.
