Parsley Root and Parsnip Soup
Parsley roots owe their intensely spicy aroma to essential oils, which make these vegetables particularly easy to digest.
When buying parsnips, leave very small and very large varieties at the store. Medium-sized turnips of about 20 centimeters usually have the best flavor.
