We took our favorite chicken noodle soup recipe and updated it to highlight our favorite winter vegetables: parsnips. Sweet and earthy, parsnips are the ideal contrast for savory chicken, tender egg noodles, and herbaceous broth. Fresh thyme and dried bay leaf are all you need to improve store-bought chicken broth. Because parsnips impart their own natural sweetness into the soup, be sure to season with salt and pepper just before serving to balance all the flavors. Note: This recipe can easily be adapted to feed four people, simply double the ingredients and divide between two Suvie pans.
