Ingredients

4 parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks 380 g
2 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks 400 g
1 pears, peeled and cut into chunks 150 g
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
4 cups vegetable broth, low-sodium 1 L
1/2 tbsp dried oregano 1 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F. Generously oil a baking sheet.
  2. Prepare the vegetables: peel and cut into large chunks. Peel and cut the pear also into large chunks, discarding the core. Lay the vegetables and pear out on the sheet in a single layer and coat them thoroughly with the oil. Roast in the middle of the oven 35-40 min, until the vegetables are softened and lightly browned. During cooking, turn them a couple times using a spatula to coat them with the oil on the sheet.
  3. Heat the broth in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the roasted vegetables and pear. Add salt and pepper then simmer 15 min. Purée the soup in a blender or food processor adding more broth if the soup is too thick. Add the oregano, adjust the seasoning then serve the soup into bowls.

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.

Roasting the vegetables gives them a very interesting taste. We all loved it. To appreciate this soup you have to love parsnip, of course. This may be the reason for less enthusiastic comments.

I wasn't a fan of this soup mainly for texture rather than taste reasons. It has a thick, grainy apple sauce like texture and thinning it with extra liquid didn't really help. I couldn't taste the pears at all; the soup tastes like a basic parsnip soup. For my time and effort, I would rather just have eaten the roasted vegetables.

Distinct flavor of the pear was welcomed. It was really good the first night, but I didn't appreciate the soup as much the second night. This soup was really easy to make and affordable to make.
