PB Carrot, parsnip, butterbean and ginger soup Sept 18

My Plant-Based Carrot, Parsnip, Butterbean and Ginger Soup is a wonderful autumnal sweet root vegetable soup with a hint of ginger and bay leaf. Perfect for taking to work for lunch or as a starter when you have friends round for dinner.

It’s super easy to make with no fancy ingredients, all you need is carrots, parsnips, celery, ginger, an onion and stock, oh, and not forgetting the bay leaves.

If you’re looking for delicious, taste bud tickling soup for lunch that will warm you up, then this is it. Packed with lots of fibre and warming root ginger, this soup will not only warm you up, it’ll keep you feeling full all afternoon. Sprinkle a few toasted almonds on the top, a few fresh chives and you’ve now got a great starter for when you have friends round.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Here’s my Plant-Based Carrot, Parsnip, Butterbean and Ginger Soup.
