Its that lovely time of year where we have abundant apples and so why not combine them with the sweet taste of parsnip to make a lovely warming Spicy Apple and Parsnip Soup
Apples are great nutritionally as they provide lots of vitamin C to zap those free radicals. They contain high levels of Quercetin which acts an anti-inflammatory and are great for those watching their waistline too as they help to balance blood sugar levels. Parsnips also pack a vitamin C punch and contain a good amount of folate. All the more reason to make a batch or two as this powerful combination of nutrients certainly gives a boost to health!
