This Star Anise Pea, Leek & Parsnip Soup has sweet undertones of licorice. Simple and understated, the star anise adds a delicate fragrant touch. The perfect pick-me-up on a cold Winter day that the whole family can enjoy.
This recipe makes good use of vegs that might be lurking at the bottom of your vegetable box. Frozen peas are picked in season at their freshest. They give this recipe a deep invigorating green colour and a satisfying velvety texture.
I like to sprinkle some fresh mint on top and serve this soup with some crusty bread and maybe a dollop of (dairy-free) cream.
