A hearty soup for when all those parsnips and onions come rolling in from the winter veggie CSA.
With so many sweet potatoes and apples in our winter veggie CSA I had to figure out *something* to make with them. The fennel and mascarpone just top it off with a luxurious touch.
My go-to choice when I’m in the mood for “butternut” bisque. The melded flavors of sweet potatoes, carrots, and squash are balanced out by the salty bacon and leeks.
What this soup lacks in color it makes up for in flavor. The parsnip has that earthy mouthfeel that carrots carry in their scent, but doesn’t come through in their taste. The onions round out the flavor, and the maple sweetens the dish.
