Prep Time 10 - 15 minutes   

Cooking Time 4 hours HIGH or 8 hours LOW       

Servings 6


2 lbs parsnips, 2 inch dice

1 large onion, 2 inch dice

2 ribs of celery, 2 inch dice

4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

1 medium apple, grated

4 cups chicken broth

2 cups milk

2 tbsp cider vinegar

1/3 cup cooked pancetta or bacon, crumbs

Put the parsnips, onion, celery, garlic, apple, broth, milk, cider vinegar and seasoning into your slow cooker insert. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 (this recipe is forgiving and can go a little longer).

Using an immersion blender, blend in your slow cooker until smooth. Serve sprinkled with the pancetta crumbs, bacon crumbs or spiced cashews.
