Salsify, parsnip and bacon soup

An interesting concoction using veg from the organic box, with some bacon.  It had a lovely earthy flavour, with a sweetness from the parsnip.  Would make it again.  Saute onion, bacon pieces and celery in olive oil, add chopped salsify (when peeled keep in acidulated water until it goes into the soup, to prevent browning), chopped celeriac and chopped parsnip.  Add chicken stock cube and crushed garlic.  Simmer, about 20 minutes, zizz - good grind of black pepper. Sprinkle on parsley.  Yum.

  1. Oh my gosh, you're soups are very cool. I wonder if a vegetarian version of bacon (fakin' bacon) would be as good in this soup. What a great idea for parsnips!
