  • Summary

    January is National Soup Month, so cozy up and celebrate with this White Bean and Parsnip Winter Soup. Parsnips are similar to carrots, but provide a richer and slightly sweeter flavor when cooked. They are also a great alternative to potatoes with less starch and more vitamins and minerals. This soup provides the satisfaction of a creamy soup but with less guilt. Blending the cannellini beans (also known as white beans) with the parsnips will give a smooth, creamy consistency without using dairy. I like my soups slightly chunky, so I pureed about ¾ of it and mixed it in with what was left in the pot. Enjoy this hearty soup and stay warm this winter.
