Crazy Good Creamy Parsnip Soup with Thai Basil (Dairy Free)

Prep Time
Total Time



  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 large parsnips, peeled and chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 4 cups (1 liter) vegetable broth
  • ½–1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½–1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into 1 inch pieces (stem peeled)
  • ½ cup fresh Thai basil (Italian basil can be substituted but is not as fragrant)
  • Garnish: Additional Thai basil, or cilantro, fresh lime juice, and cayenne pepper.


Heat a large soup pot over high heat. Reduce to medium high and add the coconut oil, onion, and garlic, and sauté for 5 minutes or until the onions are translucent.

Add the parsnips, coconut milk, vegetable broth and seasonings. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes until the parsnips are tender.

Add the chopped broccoli and basil. Simmer for another 5 minutes until the broccoli is tender. Let cool a few minutes.

Pour slightly cooled soup into the blender (in small batches if using a smaller blender) and blast until velvety smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed then reheat and serve in warm bowls, garnished as desired.


If you want to add a protein boost, blend in 1 cup cooked white beans or a scoop or two of natural Sunwarrior Warrior Blend natural protein, or your favorite natural nut or seed butter when pureeing the soup.
