The instruction how to make Creamy parsnip soup with parmesan snow flakes

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Melt the oil and half the butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the onion, garlic and chopped thyme. Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes or until the onion is soft. Add parsnip and potato. Cook, stirring for a further 5 minutes. Add the stock and season. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer gently for 30 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, for the parmesan flakes, line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Place tablespoonfuls of parmesan, with 6 on each prepared tray, allowing room for spreading. Flatten slightly and bake for 5 minutes or until golden. Set aside to cool completely.
  3. Transfer the parsnip mixture to a blender and puree until smooth. Return to the pan over low heat. Stir in the cream and cook gently until heated through.
  4. Melt the remaining butter in a small frying pan over medium heat. When the butter stops foaming, add the thyme tips. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until butter turns golden and nut brown.
  5. Divide the soup among warmed bowls. Drizzle with the thyme butter and a little extra cream. Serve with the parmesan flakes.
