Lately a good warming soup was to find quite often on our table. The kids love it and we enjoy the cozy warmth it gives us after a cold day. Soups are also made so fast with only very few ingredients, that my be a reason for having a lot of it these days too. Today though, I would like to show you a slightly different version. Not that it is made with rare ingredients but the combination of sweet – fruity – bitter makes it somehow a little special.
Sure these kinds of flavors may be a bit polarizing but hey, cooking and taste is freedom. What I personally like most about this recipe is the smooth transition of sweet parsnip to the bitterness of the radicchio. It somehow reminded me of a good Negroni. Nevertheless, one can decide how much radicchio to be added to the soup or you could even sauté a few leaves and don’t mix anything into the soup at all. You see, it is just an inspiration…what will be on your plate in the end is only up to your preference.
Enjoy every spoon!
