Parsnip, Apple and Cashew Soup

I absolutely love the combination of parsnip and apple together. I make cashew milk every few days and absolutely love how creamy it is. The combination of the cashews in the soup really make this creamier and also pack it full of healthy fats and protein. I soak my cashews first before I add them to help remove irritating phytic acid and cashews can be soaked for at least 30 minutes.

I make this soup on a regular basis and have it for lunch or dinner. If you love soups have a look at my other soup recipe: Coconut and Ginger Chicken Soup and how I make my own homemade stock.

Parsnip, Apple, Cashew Soup
A deliciously warming and nutritious soup. Made with broth and cooked with ghee and cashews makes this dish a balanced meal for lunch or dinner.

I am a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist and Personal Trainer. I am also a Bach Flower Practitioner and Ear Acupuncturist. I am truely passionate about using nature and natural processes to heal, nurture and stregthen the body, mind and spirit.

Naturopathy looks at the person as a whole and rather than treat symptoms will look at the bigger picture to help find out what signals the body is sending us. I will discuss systems (the nervous, cardiovascular, reproductive, digestive, excretory, immune, lymphatic, muscular, endocrine, skeletal and respiritory) how they are linked and how they all tell a story about what’s going on. This can therefore be used to help the body heal from any number of complaints. Whole body strength and health is the goal rather than chasing symptoms and patching things up.

I am also a mother, therefore I also hold great passion for helping people through fertility, pre and post natal and after about how children should be nourished and fed. Personally I use nutrition, homoeopathy, meditation and exercise as my family first aid kit, although I strongly believe in calling myself a complementary practitioner rather than alternative. I pride myself on my ability to guide people to make their own choices in their journey to take responsibility for their own health and happiness.
