This roasted carrot and parsnip winter soup recipe is not only heart-healthy, it is also a delicious soup to enjoy on a cold winter night.

All About Parsnips

There are many benefits to eating parsnips. They contain high levels of potassium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, and iron. In addition to an impressive range of vitamins, including vitamin B, C, E, and K, they also contain high levels of fiber and some protein.

Parsnips are associated with reducing cholesterol levels, which boosts heart health and lowers your chance of developing diabetes. They have been praised for their high fiber content, which we all know assists in facilitating the healthy movement of food through the digestive tract.

Parsnips are used as a main vegetable dish in many parts of Europe where “neeps and tatties” (parsnips and potatoes) is one of the most famous dishes in Scotland.

All About Carrots

The other gem in this recipe are carrots, another root vegetable that is closely related to parsnips.

The health benefits of carrots include reduced cholesterol, prevention from heart attacks, warding off certain cancers, improving vision, and reducing the signs of premature aging. Who wouldn’t want that!
