It’s Seriously Soup day today, featuring one of my favorite bloggers, Serena, who authors a blog called Seriously Soupy. Serena started Seriously Soupy as a creative outlet for herself after her first daughter was born, which combined her passion for cooking with an interest in learning more about soups and soup making. Since it started, she has given soup tours and taught soup classes and has a catalogue of over 100 soups on the site! You can join Serena on her Soupy journey at SeriouslySoupy.com and twice a month you can find her here, at My Judy the Foodie, sharing her wisdom and helping demystify the world of soup.
This week Serena shares her homemade Parsnip, Leek and Apple Soup which couldn’t make me happier. With schools starting and summer officially over, I’ve got apples on the brain. September and October are always my months of apple picking and apple experimentation. And, as luck would have it, until now, I’ve never made, nor sampled Parsnip, Leek, and Apple Soup…
Here’s what Serena has to say:
Fall is upon us, and during this time I love to experiment with root vegetables.
I love making simple soup recipe with parsnips, leeks, and apples that is packed with fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants.
This delicious and healthy fall soup is a great way to use ingredients that you likely have at home; it also takes virtually no time to cook.
The result was a silky and creamy soup that is perfect celebration of the upcoming crisp fall days.
