Why not combine some apple with the sweet taste of parsnip to make a lovely warming Spicy Apple and Parsnip Soup.
Apples are great nutritionally as they provide lots of vitamin C to zap those free radicals. They contain high levels of Quercetin which acts an anti-inflammatory and are great for those watching their waistline too as they help to balance blood sugar levels. Parsnips also pack a vitamin C punch and contain a good amount of folate. All the more reason to make a batch or two as this powerful combination of nutrients certainly gives a boost to health!
