  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 35m

2 servings, 2 cups each

Modest, sweet parsnips shine in this autumnal stew. Try pairing it with sandwiches of toasted sharp cheddar on country wheat and a robust dark beer for a warming fall supper.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months.


  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 parsnips, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • One 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 8 ounces chicken tenders, cut into bite-size chunks


Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, parsnips, carrot, apple, rosemary, salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 8 minutes. Add the broth and water and bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are very tender, about 10 minutes.

Transfer the soup to a blender; add the vinegar, cover and pulse until it forms a chunky puree. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids; see Tip.)

Clean the pot, return it to medium-high heat and add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Pour the soup back into the pan. Cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until heated through, about 1 minute.
