Select the SAUTE function, add the oil and allow to heat. Add the onion, and stir regularly for 2 minutes until they begin soften. Add the leftover carrots, parsnips and potatoes, garlic and thyme and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Add the chicken stock then cancel the SAUTE function.

Put the lid on and select the CHUNKY function.

Open the lid and season to taste before serving.

Serve in bowls with a dollop of crème fraiche if using.

When the program has finished, if you’d like your soup to be a mix of both smooth and chunky select the SMOOTH+ function, and press and hold SELECT button to use the blender for a few seconds, so that some of the soup is blended. Release the SELECT button to stop the blender.
