Parsnip Soup - Missing Something

I have just made parsnip soup for a function tomorrow - it is missing a flavour. I have added some chicken stock and a little curry powder. Anything ideas on whatI can jazz it up with?

sounds like you had my problem, as buzzy said to me did I have fat in it fat gives flavour - so does it need some butter? seasoning? btw my vege soup rocks today and all I did was season it with stock and salt and pepper and added a bit of fat

Fat - Bacon? Parmesan? Opps probably not with curry powder. some of the better cooks will come in and help!

Cumin, coriander, orange zest - in moderation these might help.

Nutmeg works well with parsnip

Care to share your recipe for the fritters, they sound nice, TIA?

I made a parsnip soup last weekend but it involved roasting parsnips, cauli and garlic first wth cumin and smoked paprika. Then adding it to stock.

Roast the parsnips and mash with peanut butter a good heaped tablespoon mix in a little flour to bind and cook in frypan you can make heaps using an egg and flour batter but I only cook for one so just use the ist method

wow. so instead of ideas you just come in to put me down? thanks I shall remember to avoid your posts in future

Motorbo, I think you have misinterpreted the post. I think awoftam meant "some of the better cooks than I am will come in and help". No?

Lol, I agree with david4's interpretation!

I made this parsnip soup ages ago, and thought it was good, lots of different additions:

100% positive you have misinterpreted the post.

awoftam was in no way putting you down!

If you look at the time, you both posted at 8.15.

Chef_holly-rocks, May 28, 2:25 pm

I added nutmeg, more stock, salt and pepper, lemon rind. Everyone loved it, I thought it could have been better. mjhdeal I will try that recipe next it looks more interesting that mine.
Thanks for the ideas. I always appreciate the advice on this site.

my apologies, if I did read it wrong, with the comment of fat that I suggested I thought they were picking on me. gosh I feel bad now that im so quick to think people in recipes are ready to have a go
