Parsnip and Split Pea SoupJust made this and it is delicious. Couple of things though - use double the amount of stock and cook for about an hour, not 10 minutes, or the rice and split peas don't cook and are still raw and crunchy. Didn't need the lemon or coriander on top at the end, but putting the tzatziki in was the icing on the soup, so to speak.

But yes you need a lot more stock.

Re: Parsnip and Split Pea SoupHi Do you need to soak the Split Peas and rice overnight?

Re: Parsnip and Split Pea Soupi didn't- i only soaked them while i was preparing the vegies etc.
But I did also cook my soup in the morning for lunch, it it had longer "soaking" time.... Not sure if that really made a difference tho.

Re: Parsnip and Split Pea SoupWith my scrambled brain atm I walked past the parsnips and searched 5 shops before I found a turnip. Doh!
