Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion, garlic, ginger and curry powder and gently fry for about 8-10 minutes until the onions are soft and sweet. Add the Piccolo parsnips and sweet potato and stir into the onion mixture, so they are coated in the oil and spices. Add the stock, coconut milk and cream, if using. Season well with sea salt and black pepper and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 25-30 minutes.

Check to make sure the Piccolo parsnips and sweet potato are cooked. Then blitz the soup using either a hand blender or liquidiser. Add the lime juice, rind and a little more stock if the soup is too thick. Taste the soup and add more seasoning if required.

Serve the soup piping hot with a good dollop of Greek yoghurt, grated lime rind, black pepper and grilled sourdough bread.
