    Potato Parsnip Pear Soup with Smoked Gouda

    This velvety soup is a perfect combination of rich flavours and varied textures. The earthiness of potatoes and parsnips combined with the sweetness of pears partners beautifully with the smoky gouda. Potatoes and pears add to the creamy texture without the addition of heavy cream. This nourishing, comforting meal will leave you cozy and satisfied.

    Did you know pears are one of the few fruits that don’t ripen on the tree? Pears ripen naturally from the inside out once they are harvested.
