Inspired by Mike Staffieri's 'Who needs chicken soup....redux!' blog, here is a multi-beneficial, immune boosting, feel-better soup. These measurements give 4 good 'doses'.

  • 600g pumpkin (or squash for B secretors)
  • 250g parsnips
  • big bunch of fresh parsley
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (I used herb salt)
  • 1 liter filtered water, boiled
  • 1-2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
How to make it:
  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan.
  2. Add curry powder and salt.
  3. Peel and chop garlic, and add to the pan.
  4. Pour in water and bring to the boil.
  5. Meanwhile peel and chop parsnips and add.
  6. Peel and chop pumpkin and add.
  7. Wash and chop parsley and add.
  8. Bring back to the boil, and simmer until the parsnips are soft.
  9. Allow to cool slightly, then blend until the soup is a creamy consistency.
