I LIKE THIS RECIPE BECAUSE ... the parsley compliments the parsnips well as does the oregano belong with the parmesan and courgette are a great pairing celebrating the Autumn ... but you can celebrate this meal all year round!

For The Soup
700g parsnips peeled and washed
Quarter teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic granules
2 tablespoons parsley granules
1 teaspoon olive oil (for the baking tray)
2 red onions peeled and cubed
1 courgette washed and sliced
1 litre vegetable stock

For The Parmesan Croutons
2 slices of bread - I like a loaf which contains wheatgerm and calcium
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons oregano
1 teaspoon olive oil
10 grams grated parmesan

1. Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees C. Wash and peel the parsnips; chop in half and place on a baking tray - I use disposable a foil one for this. Season with salt, pepper, garlic granules and dried herbs. Drizzle each tray with the olive oil. Place in the oven for 50 minutes.
2. After 35 minutes, drizzle olive oil into a large soup pan and warm through for several minutes. Add the chopped red onion and courgette cand fry for 3-4 minutes.
3. Transfer the roasted parsnips to the pan; pour in the stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes.
4. After 10 minutes, break-up several slices of bread into a small bowl. Season with salt, black pepper, oregano, drizzle over olive oil and add the parmesan. Toss together covering the croutons with the mix. Transfer the croutons to a baking tray (again, use a foil disposable one - it's so much easier) and place in the oven; drop the temperature to 90 degrees C and bake for 5 minutes.
5. Remove the soup from the heat and using a hand blender puree; re-warm until boiling hot and ladle into warmed bowls.  Remove the croutons from the oven and scatter over each soup bowl. Enjoy!
