30 fl oz (pint and a half) or 4 cups stock (I used home-made chicken stock)
1 onion
2 medium carrots
3 small parsnips
1 fresh beetroot
generous sprinkle of ground coriander seed
generous sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper
2 bay leaves

Handy Hint

I find beetroot takes the longest to cook.


1. Peel and chop the vegetables and put in a pan with the stock.
2. Add the coriander, pepper, bay leaves and salt. Cook until the beetroot is soft.
3. Allow to cool a little, remove the bay leaves, then liquidise (and strain through a sieve if you like; I did because I like smooth soups).
4. Heat through again and serve, with a dash of cream if you like.

Root vegetables are cheap and plentiful in winter. Make the most of them for a slightly sweet yet peppery, substantial and warming soup. You can make a vegetarian version by using a veggie stock, and a milk free version by leaving out the cream when serving. Variations: add some lemon juice or cider vinegar, or some grated orange zest. Could also add chili and turmeric. Easy to experiment with this soup.
