Simple instructions for the preparation of a parsnip soup
|15||g||butter (or vegetable oil (vegan))|
|500||g||parsnips (I like to buy organic vegetables)|
|40||ml||dry white wine (or Prosecco)|
|some||pumpkin seed oil|
Wash the parsnips and dry them.
Peel and chop the roots.
I usually cut the vegetables for the soup into bite-sized pieces right away, so I can set aside some cooked vegetables for the soup before blending.
Place the vegetables in a saucepan with the butter and sauté for approx. 8 minutes until colourless.
Deglaze with white wine and stock, then bring to the boil, slowly add the cream to the boiling liquid.
Season the soup with salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.
Take a few portions of vegetables cooked al dente out of the soup and reserve them for the soup garnish and later distribute hot in preheated bowls.
Blend the soup with a hand blender and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
Then bring to the boil, add some cold butter while blending and create a lot of foam.
Serve the cream soup with soup garnish, decorate attractively with cress, pumpkin seed oil and red pepper.
You can thread the oil dabs through with a skewer.
Serve quickly, bon appétit!

4. Tips for the Guest Kitchen
The cream soup is wonderful for serving in a cup or espresso cup.
When the guests have just arrived, you can serve a small soup with the first champagne to delight your guests.
A wonderful soup like this is a great way to start. By the way, it is also suitable as an intermediate course in a menu or as an amuse-gueule (treat for the palate) or amuse-bouche (pleasure for the mouth) at the beginning.
Serve soup in small cups and rather offer to top up – such a soup immediately steers the evening in the right direction!
