Cook over a medium flame allowing the vegetable to completely soften, about 25 to 30 minutes. Puree the mixture in a blender. Return soup to pot and adjust the salt. Add the ginger juice, orange concentrate and syrup (if necessary). Heat soup through for a few minutes.

Parsnip Bisque: Saute the shallots in corn oil for 3 minutes. Add the parsnips and allow them to soften for 7 minutes, adding a little liquid if they begin to stick to the pan). Add the balance of the stock and cover. Cook the soup on medium to low heat for 25 minutes. Remove a small amount of soup and place it in a bowl, add the miso and stir until dissolved. Stir in the miso mixture back into the soup add cinnamon and vanilla and simmer for 3 minutes. Puree soup in a blender. Swirl parsnip soup with squash soup and top with gremolata.
