Before you start

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


  1. Prepare the vegetables: Peel the potatoes and parsnips. Coarsely cut the vegetables into 3 cm pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add all the vegetables and cook over medium heat for about 10 min with occasional stirring.
  3. Pour in the warm broth and water. Cook, uncovered, until the potatoes are cooked and fork-tender, about 15-20 min.
  4. Purée the soup in a blender. Adjust the seasoning, then add milk and reheat. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with chives and feta cheese.


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

Good chicken broth is key to this recipe. I did not use the greatest chicken broth and the soup was ho-hum- until we added the feta cheese. Then everyone thought it was very good. Next time I will use a better quality chicken broth.
