Roasted Parsnip Soup

Parsnip Soup Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Alright, so I don’t normally post food on the blog that I didn’t cook myself, but I feel this parsnip soup was somewhat of a collaborative effort. You see, I was standing in the kitchen while my boyfriend made it, then I photographed it and ate it. That makes it kind of mine too, right? (Don’t answer that.) Anyway, luckily for you I’m sharing our (his) delicious recipe. And yes, I’m aware that it isn’t soup season yet to most people, but I’m down for soup any season because I’m a rebel.
