1. Put the quartered parsnips and onion in a saucepan with the milk
and vegetable stock. Bring to a simmer, then cook gently for 20-25
mins until parsnips are tender. Blend in a liquidiser until
completely smooth. Season with salt and ground white pepper. Can be
frozen for up to 1 month. If making croutons, do so now while the
soup simmers.

2. For the chestnut cream, warm together the chestnut puree, milk
and single cream, then season with salt, pepper and a pinch of
grated nutmeg. Blitz the chestnut cream with a hand blender for a
frothy finish.

NOW, MAKE IT LOOK REALLY SPECIAL

3. Ladle soup into bowls set on plates, scatter chopped chestnuts
over the top, then finish with frothy chestnut cream. Arrange a pile
of parsnip croutons on each plate and serve.

GARY’S TIP
• For ‚designer‘ parsnip croutons, cut off long, thin slices of
parsnip using a mandolin or swivel vegetable peeler. Fry in a little
hot vegetable oil for a few mins until golden, drain on kitchen
paper and sprinkle with salt They will crisp up as they cool.
