Moroccan Vegetable Soup

Our LRWC post on 10 Unique Pumpkin Recipes jogged my brain for a recipe that I have made which includes pumpkin (you can substitute butternut squash if you’d like).  This soup also has carrots, onion and parsnips.  I love parsnips, if you haven’t tried them, you should… which reminds me of another recipe! 😉

Anyway today’s recipe is easy to make, delicious and healthy.  I don’t think you can beat that.  You cook all the vegetables and then add vegetable or chicken stock.  Once the vegetables are soft, puree it all together.  Before serving, add some lemon juice to the soup and prepare a garnish of olive oil, garlic and parsley, then sprinkle the soup with paprika and you’re set.
