140 calories/serving


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 chicken broth 1 L
1/2 tbsp dried oregano 1 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

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


  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.


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

The parsnips gave the soup a nice earthy flavour. I followed the previous suggestions and left out the oregano. I also added an extra potato. It was delicious!

Great soup! I used a whole pear and used terragon for the spice. Delicously fresh.

Delicious! I made it exactly as stated with the exception of more salt and pepper. I loved it's thickness and I added a small dollop of sour cream to serve which add a little extra something. If I were to serve to guests, I would probably add more bouillon because not everyone likes soups as thick as I.
