Parsnip & Apple Soup


With the days getting a little chillier it’s time to add soup to the weekly meal plan. Soup is a staple in my diet, it’s a great way to get a boost of nutrients while being inexpensive and quick to make in large, freezable batches. It ticks all the boxes!

Did you know Apple Day is an actual thing? It’s a national day however no one told us up in Birmingham so the first I heard of it was when I moved to Sussex. So, I now have lost time to catch up on when it comes to celebrating the humble apple and what better way than adding it to a soup?
