Crock-Pot Pumpkin Parsnip Soup

crock-pot pumpkin parsnip soup

Soup from the Crock-Pot

This week I used my crock-pot for the first time to make some nice soup from pumpkin and parsnip (totally in season). It turned out even better than I could have imagined! The slow cooking definitely adds more depth to the dish!

I garnished the soup with some air-dried lamb ham from my favorite organic farm shop

I got the recipe from this nice little Dutch book, although it’s not specific paleo most dishes are suited to paleo-fy and I will absolutely try more of them :-)

    Hoi, als je ee rode pumpkin gebruik hoef je hem niet te schillen heeft een bilogische boer mij verteld. Alleen even schoonboenen de zaadjes ruw weg uitsnijden en in stukken znijden. Het pureert zeer makkelijk wanneer het gaar is. Ik doe het al jaren zo, nadat ik het advies had gekregen. Laatst werd het weer eens herhaald in Ekoplaza (Natuurwinkel)

      Bedankt voor de tip! Er zit weer een nieuwe batch in de crock-pot, dit keer mét schil, heel benieuwd hoe dat smaakt :-)
