This Roasted Vegetable Soup blends up beautifully with cannellini beans and a splash of cream gives it a silky richness.  A well-blended soup comes from using quality ingredients, cooking everything until soft enough to blend, and finally, using a good quality blender makes a big difference.

For a vegan option, use vegetable broth and substitute the cream for coconut milk.  The result is just as delicious, enjoy!

      Instructions
      1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
      2. Toss parsnips, carrots, apple and garlic with 1 tbsp oil. Spread out on a large baking tray in a single layer. Roast for 40 minutes flipping once after 20 minutes.
      3. Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tbsp of oil in a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add diced onion and saute until starting to soften, about 5-7 minutes (don't brown).
      4. To the pot add the roasted vegetables, chicken broth, beans, curry paste, and salt. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook on low for 30-40 minutes until everything is good and soft.
      5. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly 10-15 minutes. Puree mixture in a blender until smooth and silky. Return to pot and warm on low if needed. Stir in cream and white pepper. Adjust consistency to your liking with additional broth and season to taste with salt.
      Recipe Notes

      -letting the soup cool slightly before blending is not necessary, however, I find it a little safer than blending the scalding hot soup.

      -the amount of salt needed will be dependent on the saltiness of your broth.

      -makes about 8 cups of soup depending on your desired consistency.

      Today I am very excited to share with you my collaboration with The Jungle Farm, creating easy and delicious recipes using fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables.  The Jungle Farm, centrally located in Alberta is a family orientated farm committed to providing locally grown quality fresh produce.  Along with grain farming, The Jungle Farm offers a gorgeous array of herbs, bedding plants, hanging baskets, lettuce gardens, preserves and of course fruits and vegetables. They don’t stop there; you’ll also find family and group activities such as wagon rides, corn maze, farm animals and field trips.   You can find out a whole lot more about The Jungle Farm at www.thejunglefarm.com

      My personal favourite is the U pick fruits and vegetables and the vegetable box programs.  Over the spring and summer months they offer a weekly vegetable box that includes that week’s seasonal bounty, cleaned, boxed and ready for pick up.  Along with each box is a weekly e-newsletter highlighting The Jungle Farm events and providing recipes for the items included in that weeks box.  This is where I come in, working with produce from The Jungle Farm providing a spattering of wonderful, easy to follow recipes to help you use the items in your weekly vegetable box. So be sure to check out the recipe links provided in your newsletter.  While I encourage all visitors to my site to roam around and look at all recipes, I know time is short for most people.  Therefore, I have provided a tab called “The Jungle Farm Produce” in the recipe index specifically for recipes using Jungle Farm produce.  So for those who don’t have time to browse but are in need of a recipe for your gorgeous produce, you can find it all under one tab any time you visit Compelled To Cook.

      The first recipe I am sharing is Roasted Tomato Pumpkin Soup using The Jungle Farm sugar pumpkin, onions and leeks.  Healthy, luscious and delicious swirled with sour cream and topped with crispy leeks.  What I love about this recipe is the deep flavour that develops from roasting the pumpkin and tomatoes, then all ingredients are added to one pot to make it super easy to put together.  It makes a big pot and freezes very well too.  Although this is a simple recipe overall it does require a little extra time due to the roasting, so it makes for a wonderful weekend soup when you might have a little more time.

      I look forward to creating and sharing many more recipes using local, quality fresh produce from The Jungle Farm and encourage those following today to find me on their favourite social media platform.  You can find my Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook links on the homepage.

          Instructions
          Roasted Tomato Pumpkin Soup
          1. Preheat oven to 300℉. Peel pumpkin using a vegetable peeler and cut off stem. Cut in half vertically and scoop out seeds (reserve seeds for roasting if desired). Cut into approximate 1 1/2" chunks and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Remove stem from tomatoes and cut into quarters. Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle the pumpkin and tomatoes with 2 tbsp olive oil and roast in preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours. Add garlic cloves to the tray during the last 1/2 hour.
          2. Peel and chop onion into 1/2" chunks. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large soup pot or dutch oven over medium heat, add onion and sauté until starting to soften, approximately 5 minutes. To the pot add roasted vegetables and all remaining ingredients, reserving 1 cup chicken broth to adjust consistency later. Cover and simmer for a minimum 30 minutes. Remove from heat and blend with a hand held emersion blender until smooth. Adjust constituency using reserved chicken broth. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Ladle into serving bowls and swirl in 1 1/2 tbsp of sour cream and top with crispy leeks.
          Crispy Leeks
          1. Combine flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Trim ends from leek and rinse well, making sure to rinse under any loose leaves. Cut leek into 1/4" slices and separate rings. Toss leek slices in flour mixture to gently coat. Add oil to a shallow pot or skillet and heat until the oil sizzles when a sprinkle of flour is added. Scoop out half of the leek slices shaking off any excess flour and add to oil. Fry for 4-5 minutes until golden, turning once. Using a slotted scoop remove leeks from oil and allow to drain on a paper towel lined plate. Repeat the frying process with remaining leeks. Keep uncovered at room temperature until ready to use.
          Recipe Notes

          In this recipe, two baking sheets were used to demonstrate the roasting of the pumpkin and tomatoes, however roast all on one baking sheet if desired. A stand blender can also be used to puree the soup.  Makes approximately 10 cups.
