Thick and Creamy Garlic and Parsnip Soup

February 5, 2015

Author Notes: I ate a raw clove just the other night.

Am I turning into a witch doctor?

Possibly.

But also, you know, candida.

In the meantime, I thought some garlic soup could be healing. This soup is thick and very filling. Top it with something fun. Cheese. Avocado. Fresh tomato. Organic non-GMO corn chips.

Whatever makes you happy.

Directions

  1. Peel & chop the parsnips.
  2. Chop the broccoli, onion, and garlic.
  3. Saute the garlic and coconut oil in a large soup pot for 1 minute.
  4. dd all the vegetables with the broth and spices.
  5. In 3-4 batches, add the soup mixture to a large blender or Vitamix, filling the blender no more than 1/2 full.
  6. This is really important, as the hot steam can force the top off the blender if it’s too full. Blend the soup until thick and creamy. Serve with your choice of toppings.
