Healthy Carrot and Parsnip Soup

Healthy Carrot and Parsnip Soup

This healthy carrot and parsnip soup is both earthy and (a tad) sweet in flavor. Not only is it delicious, but it packs a punch of protein from the quinoa, and is full of fiber, too! Vegetarian and gluten-free.

It’s getting chilly here in Richmond. It hasn’t really bothered me because I haven’t been outside much, but this week seemed like a good week for a hearty bowl of soup. Soup sort of screams healing comfort food to me and that’s exactly what I needed…
I didn’t have any pumpkin on hand (shocker… I know), so I rolled with parsnips and added a little quinoa to bump up the protein.

It turned out to be warm, comforting and super delicious. Isaac and I both kept going on and on about how tasty it was the whole time we were eating it.

It’s sweet from the carrots, but not too sweet, and has a great flavor from all the herbs and spices. Quinoa is the perfect addition as it makes the soup a little heartier so that it can be served as a meal, not just an appetizer or side item.
