Carrot-Parsnip Ginger-Lime Soup

 Carrot Parsnip Ginger Lime Soup makes a great meal
Comforting and creamy Carrot-Parsnip Ginger-Lime Soup needs to grace your table this Fall and Winter season. It makes the perfect appetizer or starter course, but is filling enough as a main dish. You are going to love the zing of the lime juice in this one.

My husband said this soup needs to be on everyone's table this holiday season. That's big for him. BIG. He doesn't just make those type of blanket statements, so I was a little shocked. However, he's's that good. This soup is really that good.

If parsnips are not something you regularly eat, you really need to add them into your meals. They are amazing in soup and equally fantastic when roasted with salt and pepper. They are honestly my favorite root vegetable.

    My daughter is a vegetarian. Do you think using vegetable broth would alter the flavor too much?
