I went rogue on recipe and tested out my own recipe for carrot-parsnip-ginger soup. I made it late last night in prep for a busy work week (should last me 2 meals). It was packed with flavor, but I think it needed a little more time boiling before blending (it has a certain fibrous/density to it), and maybe a little cream or ricotta. Overall, not bad for a first try!
Following up with yesterday’s soup excursion, I tried my own variation. I threw all sorts of goodies in there, whatever sounded good. One change I made was after cooking the veggies, I put about 2/3 in the blender on soup mode, and then added the other 1/3 to pulse more gently (it was a little too smooth before, I like a little chunkiness in my soup). Splendid indeed!
