A healthy & hearty fall soup from Healthy Eating Active Living. Carrots and Parsnips are great local fall root vegetables. Parsnips, relatives of carrots contain a good amount of vitamin C, potassium, manganese, B vitamins (B1, B3, B6 and folic acid), and fibre. Carrots on the other hand provide the highest source of pro-vitamin A carotenes, as well as good levels of vitamin K, biotin, fibre, and vitamin C.


4 parsnips, chopped

4 carrots, chopped

1 onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tbsp fresh ginger

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 cups water


Heat over to 325F. Toss vegetables in garlic & olive oil, and place on baking sheet in the oven for 40 minutes or until carrots and parsnips are lightly roasted. Transfer veggies to a high powered blender or food processor. Cover with water and almond milk and puree until smooth. Add more liquid to adjust the consistency for your own enjoyment.
