Curried Parsnip Soup (Gluten Free)

I made this for lunch recently and everyone loved it even my friends kids.

It is an unusual soup that is well worth making esp as it is really quick and cheap to make, it took me 20 minutes from start to finish and cost less than €4 for 2 litres.

You can use a spicy or mild curry powder depending on your tastes, I used a mild one as with the added chilli it was spicy enough for me.

This recipe was inspired by Derek, a fellow chef I used to work with, he is big into clean living and raw foods. You can check out his Facebook page by clicking on the images below or go to his website
