Sometimes a coincidence is the best creator, don’t you agree? The sudden disappearance of parsnip from our local grocery shop made us rethink the concept of this recipe and use turnip instead. The reason behind it was simple: we needed a white root vegetable that will go along with cauliflower, sweet potato and chickpeas. Quick decisions had to be made and… bingo.
The idea was to create a velvety creamy soup celebrating the beautiful Berlin autumn we had in November. Two weeks without a single rain drop, with yellowish rays of sun brightening the greyest corners of the city. It almost felt as if the cold blue tones would be deleted from the landscape, conquered by various shades or red, magenta, yellow, brown and orange – just like in Spike Jonze’s movie Her. Well, almost like that. Except for the fact that we still had cars and keyboards.
Anyways, with the first snowfall couple of days ago the city color design changed back to blue-gray and the sun migrated to warmer countries. If you want to arouse the memories of red palette from before, here’s the trick: Follow the instructions below and let the warmth settle in on your plate. Welcome winter wonderland.
