Parsnip, Broccoli & Blackeyed Pea Soup

I don't know what I like best, the advent of fall with soup cooking on the stove or spring when we can enjoy fresh crisp salads. The cool fresh air of fall encourages me to pull out the soup recipes. Here's a great soup recipe that you'll lovea hearty veggie soup with broccoli and parsnips that's easy and quick to make. Parsnips add a sweetness to the soup that will convert any skeptics.

Families love this soup originally posted in January 2011.
