Peel the onions and garlic cloves and roughly chop them. Peel the parsnips and carrots, wash them well, and chop them.
Heat a splash of olive oil in a medium sized pan. Fry the onion and garlic in it and, after a few minutes, add the carrot and parsnip. Bake these until they start to colour slightly.
Pour in the juice of 1 orange along with a litre of stock and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and let the soup simmer for around 20 minutes.
The exact cooking time will depend on the size of the parsnip and carrot pieces. Purée the soup; you can do this with a stick blender or a regular blender. Add a handful of grated parmesan cheese.
Season the soup with salt and pepper and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy your dinner!
