White Bean Parsnip Soup Recipe

Course Lunch/Dinner
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 12-15 oz can white beans well rinsed & drained
  • 2 medium sized parsnips peeled & sliced
  • 5 cups plant-based milk
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • fresh parsley for garnish chopped
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • After peeling and rinsing the parsnips, remove the tops and bottoms, then slice them into bite-sized pieces. Be cautious that they are a little more firm than carrots.
  • In a medium sized saucepan, over medium-high heat, cook the beans, coriander, and the parsnips in your choice of plant based milk for 10-12 minutes.
  • Make sure that the soup maintains a gentle boil while it is cooking.
  • At ten minutes: test a parsnip by piercing it with a knife. If the knife goes in easily, you are ready to go. If the parsnip is resistant, the soup will need a little more time.
  • When the parsnips are soft, salt and pepper the soup to taste and garnish with fresh parsley to serve.
