  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion (chopped)
  • 5 parsnips (peeled and chopped)
  • 3 Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored, chopped)
  • 1 medium potato
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • sea salt and black pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened CashewMilk (or coconut milk)
  • fresh chives (minced for garnish)

Crustini - Optional

  • 1 baguette
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  • Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and cook for 3 - 5 minutes, or until softened but not brown.
  • Add the parsnips, apples, and potato and stir to combine.
  • Cover the pan, reduce heat and cook until the apples begin to breakup, about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the broth, curry powder, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil.
  • Place the cover back on the pan, reduce heat, and simmer for 35 - 40 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Puree soup using an immersion blender until smooth. Or pour into a blender in small batches and puree until smooth, and return to pan.
  • Whisk in the Cashewmilk, and adjust seasonings in necessary.
  • To serve, ladle the soup into shallow bowls, sprinkle with chives, and top with 2 Crustini, if desired.

Optional Crustini

  • Preheat the broiler. Cut eight to ten 1/2" slices from a baguette and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Toast the slices on a foil lined pan, about 4" from the heat, turning them so that both sides are lightly toasted.


Any non-dairy milk will work, but almond or rice will make a very thin soup!
