THRIFTY WINTER WARMER
Jane Price makes a delicious rabbit and parsnip soup for next to nothing
As much as I love a fancy meal out in a smart restaurant – especially if Phill is paying – there’s something very satisfying about a rustic, homemade meal enjoyed in the cosiness of my own home. It’s even better if the meal costs next to nothing, and this one used an onion and a few parsnips plus a free rabbit supplied by the Editor. I even used up some stale bread to make croutons, and the vintage soup bowls were found in a local hospice charity shop, which we like to support.
Key to this soup is getting a lovely golden colour on the parsnips because this enhances the flavour and helps to give a bit of colour to the soup. The cider vinegar and lemon juice can be left out, but they do add a touch of zing and stop the soup being too rich. I like this soup quite thick, but you can add more water or stock to
Main: This cost just pennies but was truly delicious
