an easy FALL soup

if this bowl full of tasty ingredients doesn’t scream “HELLO FALL” at’cha, then i don’t know what planet you’re on! 🙂

the soup was very easily prepared by simply roasting some fall vegetables, brewing them together with broth for a bit, then pureeing it all up in the blender… this totally falls under theEASY weeknight meal’ category, and is just as effortless to freeze for later consumption

i didn’t tweak a thing from the recipe provided by Whole Foods – i know, totally not my style! i find myself usually changing at least one thing, but this one just said to me ‘leave it be’, and i did just that… and im really happy about that too!

here’s the recipe from them, i left out the cheese crisps, but they def would have been a GREAT add on to the complete the meal


SOUP Ingredients:
1 lb. carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 lb. parsnips, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 lb. Braeburn apples, peeled if desired, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 t. sea salt, more to taste
1/2 t. freshly cracked black pepper, more to taste
4 c. vegetable broth
1 c. water
1 T. grated fresh ginger, more to taste

CHEESE CRISPS Ingredients:
1/2 lb. Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated, about 2 cups
1/4 c. whole wheat flour
2 T. chopped fresh chives
2 T. chopped fresh parsley
1 t. freshly cracked pepper

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Combine carrots, parsnips, apples, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Toss well to coat.
Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.
Roast for 12 to 15 minutes, until soft and browned.
