Directions

  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat and add the butter, onion, coriander seeds, parsley stems and a generous pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the parsnips, carrots and garlic; season with salt and cook, stirring, until slightly softened, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Add 7 cups water, the orange juice and molasses to the pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Stir the heavy cream and milk into the soup and return to a simmer. Working in batches, transfer to a blender and puree until smooth; thin with water if the soup is too thick. Stir in the ginger and chopped parsley leaves and season with salt. Serve drizzled with olive oil.
