    Default Leek, Parsnip & Ginger soup

    taken from 'Healthy Heart Cookbook' , H.Middleton

    serves 4-6

    2 tbsp oil
    8 oz leeks, sliced
    1 oz fresh ginger, finely chopped (or half tsp ground)
    24 oz parsnips, chopped
    half pint dry white wine/cider
    2 pts stock/water

    heat oil, cook leeks and ginger gently until leeks soften. Add parsnips, cook for a further 10 mins until soft. Add wine and stock, bring to boil. Reduce heat, simmer for 20 mins or so. Blend until smooth. Season to taste, garnish with paprika or yogurt if liked (or cream if you're not 'healthy')

    Have you tried it Two Sheds? Sounds good. Not too sure that the wine/cider is particularly healthy.

    made this soup...and put it into freezer cups to take to work as and when I needed! Took one in yesterday, was looking forward to it....ended up going to a meeting a short notice over lunch...so gave to a colleague, who devoured it! she said "very very lovely soup"! maybe I'll manage to get time to eat some tomorrow!
