Roasted Mushroom Parsnip Soup

Soup weather is here, meaning it’s time to get out of the cold and curl up with a big bowl (or two!). This creamy soup by Chez Us is rich, smooth, and believe it or not, doesn’t contain any dairy. It’s a great option for lunch or dinner.

What You Do

  4. In a dutch oven heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil over medium low heat, then add the leeks. Stir and cook until soft, about 3 – 5 minutes.
  5. Add 1 of the cloves of garlic (the smashed one). Stir.
  6. Then add the mushroom mixture, thyme and the stock. Stir.
  7. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a very low simmer and cook for 30 minutes.
  8. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  9. Using a food processor, in batches puree the mixture until smooth.
