Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 11 oz (300g) parsnips, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 baking potato, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 4½ cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Creme fraiche, for serving
  • Chopped parsley, for serving

Directions
