Parsnip and Carrot Soup

  • FAST
  1. 12 thin slices from a baguette
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  3. 1 small garlic clove, peeled
  4. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  5. 4 medium parsnips (about 1 pound), peeled and diced
  6. 4 medium carrots (about 1 pound), diced
  7. 1 medium leek, white and tender green, thinly sliced
  8. 5 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
  9. 1 bay leaf
  10. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  11. 1/2 cup tubetti or other small pasta
  12. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  1. Brush both sides of the bread with the butter and toast until golden. Lightly rub 1 side of the croutons with the garlic clove.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the parsnips and carrots and cook over moderately high heat until golden, about 10 minutes. Stir in the leek, then add the stock and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper, cover and bring to a boil. Cook over low heat until the vegetables are soft, about 13 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in boiling salted water until not quite al dente, about 8 minutes; drain. Add to the soup, cover and cook until al dente, about 3 minutes. Discard the bay leaf. Stir in the parsley and serve with the garlic croutons.
Serve With Salad and cured ham.
