Curried Parsnip Soup with Turmeric Chickpeas

As autumn enters full swing with pretty orange, red and yellow leaves falling off the trees, root vegetables are stacked on shop shelves. Soup is one of my favourite winter foods - it's warming, quick to make and so handy for a simple, hearty lunch.

This deliciously thick and creamy soup is a filling meal in itself, with the sweet crunch of maple chickpeas and zing of lime + coconut to finish it beautifully.

INGREDIENTS

4 parsnips chopped

2 sweet potatoes peeled and chopped

1 tin chickpeas

1 tsp maple syrup

1 tsp coconut oil

1 tsp maple syrup

2 tbsp flaked coconut

Juice of half a lime

Simmer the pan of vegan bouillon, add the garam masala and roasted vegetables and allow to cool

Add the cooled soup to a food processor and blitz until smooth
