I know, I know, this soup sounds weird doesn't it. I didn't have an apple but did have a bruised pear so that is what I made. Herewith the recipe:
1lb Parsnips, peeled and diced
1 onion, peeled and diced
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
1 courgette, wiped and diced
1 pear, peeled if preferred, diced
1 level tablespoon curry paste/powder of your choice
2 chicken stock cubes
Cornflour to thicken
1 level tablespoon crème fraiche - optional
Gently fry onion in a little oil until soft.
Add curry paste/powder.
Stir to cook slightly, then add everything else including crumbled stock cubes.
Just cover the vegetables with hot water.
Bring to the boil then simmer for 20 - 25 minutes.
Checked if everything is cooked.
Whiz up with stick blender or cool a little and whiz in a liquidizer.
Thicken to how you like it then stir in the crème fraiche is using.
