Parsnip and Chestnut Soup



  1. In a large saucepan heat oil. Add parsnips, chestnuts, onion, garlic, and pepper. Cook, covered, 10 minutes or until parsnips are tender, stirring often. Add broth and bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Add marjoram; cook for 10 minutes more. Remove marjoram and discard. Cool soup.
  2. Place one-third of mixture in a blender container. Cover; blend until smooth.* Return mixture to new saucepan. Repeat with remaining soup. Strain soup through a large sieve, if desired. Ladle into bowls. If desired, swirl 1 tablespoon of nondairy sour cream into each serving. Makes 6 cups (8 side-dish servings).

From the Test Kitchen
