Roasted Parsnip and Squash Soup

A great vegetable soup for an autumn or winter lunch.


  • 750g butternut squash, peeled and chopped
  • 250g parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Pepper
  • 500ml water
  • 500ml milk (available from Morefresh)
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour


This recipe will make 4 servings.

Preheat your oven to 200ºc. Line a baking tray with foil.

Combine the squash, parsnips, onions, vinegar, thyme, salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper on the baking tray, tossing it to coat. Spread it out on the tray in one layer and roast for about 30 minutes, until brown and tender.

Transfer the vegetables to a large pot and add the water, then bring to a boil over a high heat. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and boil gently for 10 minutes until the flavours are blended. Transfer to a blender (in batches depending on the size of your blender) and puree until smooth, adding some of the milk as necessary. Return the mixture to the pot.

Whisk the flour and remaining milk and gradually stir into the pot. Simmer over a medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes. Season with pepper to taste.

Boil the pasta in salted water in a saucepan, and add the broccoli 3 minutes before it is done. Drain and return to the pot.

Melt the butter in a frying pan on a medium heat, then add the red pepper, chili flakes, salt and pepper. Sauté for 3 minutes.

Put the flour in a large bowl and add a little milk, mixing it together until it becomes a smooth paste. Stir in the rest of the milk, then pour the mixture into the frying pan, along with the beans.

Stir until the mixture thickens, then add the pasta and 30ml of vinegar. Add pepper and remaining vinegar to taste.

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1cm chunks

  • 500g baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. Indian curry paste of your choice
  • Plain yoghurt for serving (optional)


This recipe will serve 8 people.

Put the broth, onion, and curry paste in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the lentils, then reduce the heat and cover, simmering for 5 minutes.

Add the sweet potatoes to the saucepan, then cover again and simmer for a further 10 minutes, until the lentils and sweet potatoes are tender. Add the milk.

Carefully pour about 1/3 of the soup into a blender (remember it’s hot!). Puree, then return it to the saucepan. Add the spinach and stir over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes, until the spinach is wilted.

Stir in the lemon juice and serve with a dollop of yoghurt if you wish.

If there is too much for one meal, store in a sealed container in a fridge and eat the following day.
