"The flavor of this soup was amazing, everything I wanted when cooking with parsnips. But I had the hardest time with it being pur?ed , kinda like swallowing baby food."

"This soup tastes great! It is packed with nutrients. It is fairly easy to make, just a bunch of peeling veggies. I like to substitute yams for the sweet potatoes."
