This is a great lighter soup I came up with on Thanksgiving, trying to find an inventive way to use seasonal vegetables.

Instructions Checklist
  • Pour 1/3 cup olive oil into a deep pot, and heat over medium heat. Stir in the carrots, celery, and onion; cook until vegetables can be pierced with a fork, about 5 minutes. Stir in the portobello mushrooms, and cook 5 minutes more. Pour in the chicken broth, and add the parsnips and shiitake mushrooms. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer until the parsnips are soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

I changed the chicken broth to veggie broth to make this dish vegetarian. It was a very light soup with lots of flavor and super healthy. Definitely a keeper. Read More

Nice taste combo with the mushrooms and the parsnips! I used button mushrooms because that was all I had. also omitted the onion. All the flavors went well with this soup. Will make again. Read More

I'm a pretty good cook but never have made a good mushroom soup- not anymore! This was yummy! I used portabella and oyster because that's what I had on hand. Love the parsnips in this recipe! Will make again. Thank you! Read More
