    1       tb           Butter
    1       lb           Parsnips, thinly sliced
    1       lb           Apples, peeled/cored/sliced
    1                    Med. onion, chopped
    2       ts           Curry powder
    1       t            Ground cumin
    1       t            Ground coriander
      1/2   ts           Cardamom
    1                    Large clove garlic, crushed
    1 1/4   l            Beef or chicken stock
  150       ml           Cream
                         Salt and pepper
                         Chopped chives or parsley
 
   Heat the butter, and when foaming, add the parsnips,
   apples, and onions. Soften them but do not let them
   color.  Add the curry powder, the spices and garlic;
   cook for about 2 minutes, stirring well.  Pour in the
   stock slowly, stirring until well mixed.  Cover and
   simmer gently for about half an hour, or until the
   parsnips are quite soft.  Taste for seasoning.  Sive
   or liquidize, and if it seems too thick, dilute with a
   little stock or water.  Add the cream and reheat, but
   do not let it boil.  Serve garnished with chopped
   chives or parsley.
