    This is a nice creamy bowl of soup. I did add some garam masala early in the simmer to add some warmth to the flavour base and after pureeing, I added some extra broth and swirled in some heavy cream. I still felt it was too sweet (parsnips always seem to surprise me this way) so I finished with a heavy grind of pepper and some of Chrissy Teigan's chili oil. Now I have a lovely pot of soup with a nice hit of background heat.
