Roasted Parsnip and Carrot Soup with Fennel Oil

Serves 6
by Tenina Holder

OK, so some of you are gluten free, dairy free, vegans...this one is for you! Even though I have used liquid chicken stock in this version, you can easily switch out that for vegetable stock, or even just water with some more seasoning. It is totally creamy and delicious, largely due to the roasting and then of course good ole Thermie blending. You cannot beat a minute's whipping any day!! So I hope it ticks a few boxes for you...Souper!!
