Dairy free mushroom parsnip soup

{Giveaway} Mushroom Parsnip Soup

Published On 3 December, 2013 | Dairy Free, Giveaway, Gluten Free, Kosher, Vegan

 If I recall one thing from the kitchen of my childhood, it’s the red bold red Le Creuset dutch oven that graced the table more than anything else.  Whether a perfectly roasted chicken or a heartwarming pot of soup, something about that pot meant dinner was cooked with love which is why I love to cook for my family in our bold red set of cookware. 

There’s a new signature pan available, the signature 2-in-1 multi pan and it’s perfect for a smaller dinner, soup or stew.  Perhaps a romantic night in, or quick mac and cheese for the kids. The lid doubles as skillet, and the entire pan will fit nicely in the fridge if you want to make a meal ahead of time.

Ever since I set eyes on this Le Creuset at their awesome Overland Park store, this little multi-pan has been my go-to for dinner almost every night of the week.  The first dish I made in my new pan was a mushroom parsnip soup and the nice people at Le Creuset are giving you an opportunity to win one of these too. 

I based my soup on this Mushroom Parsnip Soup recipe, adapting it a little.  If you’re out of broth, you can always use marmite in a little hot water.

One of my favorite vegetables is a roasted parsnip, I slice them thin and roast them with just a little salt, pepper and olive oil.  They make the perfect side dish or snack and the natural sugars come out when you roast them at 425 degrees for about 45 minutes.  Parsnips make the perfect partner for mushrooms in risotto, gratin or soup.

Once your parsnips have roasted, you’re almost ready to go, making this the soup both delicious and quick.
