Parsnip Soup

Don’t throw away your parsnips, let’s make Parsnip Soup.  It’s healthy, delicious and a great way to lose weight. I even eat it raw.  Parsnips are a root vegetable that is native to Eurasia and have been used extensively in that region since ancient times, and it is related to carrots and parsley.  Parsnips help in weight loss, boosts immune system, helps maintain healthy heart, aids in reducing cholesterol levels, and reduces risk of neual tube defects in infants……
