2 ½ lbs of parsnips peeled and sliced.

2 liters of chicken stock

3 tsp of smoked paprika

½ Onion

Salt & Pepper

Olive oil

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 350º.

Peel and chop the parsnips.

Coat and toss with a little olive oil and place the pieces in a single layer in a roasting pan.

Sprinkle with 1 tsp of roasted paprika and some kosher salt.

Roast the parsnips for 1 hour or until done.

Make sure you stir them every 20 minutes to try and brown all sides.

Meanwhile chop the onion and sauté in the bottom of a heavy bottomed pot.

Add the chicken stock to the pot with the rest of the roasted paprika.

When the parsnips are done add them to the pot as well and let them cook a little bit (10 minutes).

Purée everything together and add lots of freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste.
