Creamy Parsnip Soup

Pat Duran


This recipe adapted from Martha Stewart: Very creamy and so delicious- I love parsnips.

To prepare the leeks: Trim and discard root ends and dark-green parts. Halve lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. Wash in several changes of cold water until all the grit is removed.
