Vegetable Soup with roasted Paranuts - Sweet and Creamy.

I just got home from work and, inspired by a soup a friend of mine cooked last week, I was inspired to make a quick vegetable soup with roasted Para Nuts.

For this soup you'll need:
  • Parsley root
  • Celeriac root
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Parsley
  • Para Nuts

Begin by pealing and roughly cutting all the vegetables. Set aside.

Cut the onion and garlic ...

... and soften in a pot with a knob of butter.

Add the vegetables and fry for a moment.

Before the onion and garlic burn add a glass of water and boil rapidly until the water is gone and the vegetables are soft.

While you wait for the water to evaporate, hack the nuts into little pieces ...

... and dry-roast them.

When the water evaporated from the vegetables pour the milk in.


Once the water comes to a boil, pull the pot off the heat. Now it's time to blend! Using a tool of your choice turn your soft vegetables into a nice purée-soup.

Of course you can blend as finely as you want. I personally like to have some chunks left to chew. This is also the moment to season the soup. I used nothing but salt to be able to taste every bit of the vegetables.

For the final touch add some finely chopped parsley and your roasted nuts.

Aaaaaaand that's it!

If you're using Weight Watchers, one portion (half of this soup)  has around 3 ProPoints.

Enjoy and be sexy!
