Yesterday, we talked about experimenting with spices and winter vegetables
. Today, we've found a recipe that does exactly that. It's a spicy parsnip
soup from a blog that's all about, well, spice! If parsnips are one of the vegetables you fear
, this simple recipe from Jane Spice may change your mind. They're simmered in stock with softened celery, onion and garlic and then punched up with a mixture of coriander, cumin, turmeric and chili powder.
We love soups like this one that are pureed to a creamy consistency yet keep it light without any actual cream.
In addition to spice-centric recipes, Jane Spice features an index with introductions to nearly 40 spices, including a couple that are new to us. Are you familiar with asafoetida or nigella? We're anxious to give them a try!
