I love spicy parsnip soup. Even  parsnip haters love it  :D  

I use coriander powder (2 tspn) and cumin powder (1 teaspoon) instead of curry powder, and a little chilli powder.

Just the thing for a bonfire party I'd say  :D

I put my recipe for curried parsnip soup on here ages, ago, but it disappeared.

I made it for my granddaughter and her boyfriend once ages ago when she had her braces in and her mouth was sore.  They took it upstairs where they were playing computer games and I heard sounds of oh this soup is lovely.  Then my granddaughter came back down with one empty bowl and the other one half full.  Who wasted the soup I asked?  That's J's she said, but I thought he was enjoying it?  oh he was Nan, then he asked what it was and I said I wasn't sure, but I'd seen you peeling parsnips.  Oh I don't like parsnips he said!!!!! :lol:

He wouldn't eat anymore!!!!   :lol:

No, I mean chips as in chips  :D

Cholesterol  :?   You fry em in clean veg oil. No worries, then turn them out onto kitchen paper. Gorgeous  :D

You can make chips without deep frying at all if you wish. Just roll them in a little oil and then oven cook them

More than one way to skin a cat  :D

I think with parsnips you're meant to peel them

Parsnip chips are just gorgeous. Lovely colour too  :D
