© Chef Oscar Umahro Cadogan

The following recipe addresses the special diet considerations for: dairy-free, gluten-free, low glycemic index, vegan, vegetarian, anti-cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, inflammatory bowel diseases.

Serves 4
This lovely soup will do as a small meal or as an appetizer. It goes very well with steamed fish or dense bread made from whole flour and can also be served cold. Garlic, chili, and fennel seeds bring warmth to the soup and your body making it perfect for cold fall and winter days. The soup is also very rich in B-vitamins and enzymes good for your digestive system, both coming from the miso. And in potassium and magnesium from the parsley.

  • 4 parsnips
  • 30 cloves of garlic, chopped roughly
  • 1 dried red chili, roasted and ground finely

  • 1 pc kombu (kelp)
  • 1/2 stick of cinnamon
  • 4.5 cups (1 L) of water
  • 1 large bunch of parsley
  • 3-4 tbs genmai or mugi miso
  • 2-3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • freshly pressed lemon juice


Cooking Instructions
1) Scrub and wash the parsnips thoroughly, cut off the ends, place in an ovenproof dish with, add approx. 1/2 cup (1dl) of water, and bake for 45 minutes in a 400° F (200° C) hot oven until tender.
2) Combine garlic, extra virgin olive oil, and toasted spices in a large pot and saute over medium heat for 15-20 minutes together with a pinch of sea salt and a dash of freshly ground black pepper until soft, fragrant, and lightly golden brown.
