Creamy soups are one great way to get more vegetables into your diet. You can purée several vegetables together, and get to eat some vegetables which maybe you wouldn’t have touched otherwise, since parsnip and celeriac seldom take center stage. There's celeriac soup, of course, but I mostly use these two root vegetables as a base in various vegetable and meat dishes. I'm also thinking of including them in smoothies.
Both of them come with great health benefits: fiber, vitamins C, B6 and other B-complex vitamins, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, magnesium, calcium, iron and other minerals (celery root), fiber, vitamins C and folate, manganese, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and other minerals (parsnip). Come to think of it, some people aren’t too fond of broccoli either, even if they know this vegetable is really good for them. This creamy soup is an easy and sure-fire way to get to appreciate broccoli.
