Between turns of the page is where I have abided for the past week.
My eyes have devoured millions of words and my fingertips brushed the corners of countless pages during this phase of my bibliophilia. There is one drawback to reading so many books in such a short period, I often find myself too absorbed in some character's world to bother making anything other than a snack to settle the howling wolves of my stomach. After a few night's eating toast or porridge for dinner I decided enough was enough and that I needed a good, nourishing meal instead. Thus enters a large bowl of soup...
prep time: 15mins.
cooking time: 50mins.
total: 1hour & 5mins.
taste: 4/5. Sweet, creamy parnsip with salty feta and nutty pecans = delightful.
The feta is what makes this dish, without it the parsnip soup would have been too sweet for me, but with the cheese it was wonderfully balanced. The soup is thick and velvety and all together satisfying.
would I make it again: Yes.
