Parsnip & apple soup

Parsnip & apple soup

Parsnips are a great source of magnesium, and this slightly sweet soup is great way to get your kids eating soup.  Once your kids will eat soup, getting the gut healing chicken stock into them becomes a breeze!  My mum always made this soup for me when I was a child.


  • 25g ghee
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 450g parsnips, chopped
  • 250g green apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1.2 litres chicken stock
  • 70ml coconut cream


Melt the ghee in a large saucepan, then add the onion and garlic and cook gently until softened.

Add the apples and parsnips and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.

Add the coriander and mix through, until it becomes fragrant.

Add the chicken stock and a pinch of salt and bring to the boil

Reduce the heat, cover the pan and simmer for 25 minutes

Remove from heat and use stick blender to puree it to a smooth consistency

Add the cream and stir through.
