  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Arrange the carrots, parsnips, and garlic on a roasting tray. Drizzle with two tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper. Scatter over the thyme and toss to coat. Roast for 40 – 45 minutes, turning the vegetables over halfway through.
  2. Heat the remaining oil in a Le Creuset 24cm Signature Round Casserole. Add the onion and sauté over a medium heat until softened, about 6-8 minutes. Add the cumin and coriander and cook for another minute.
  3. Add the roast vegetables into the casserole. Add the stock and bring it up to a boil. Cover partially with the lid and simmer for 10-12 minutes. Transfer to a blender and blitz until smooth. Pour the soup back into the casserole. Add the coconut milk and warm through.
  4. For the salsa, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine.
  5. Ladle the soup into warmed bowls. Swirl over a tablespoon of yoghurt or cream and serve the hazelnut salsa alongside.
