Recipe: Parsnip, Apple, Shallot, and Thyme Soup with Aged Pecorino

Parsnip, Apple, Shallot, and Thyme Soup with Shaved, Aged Pecorino

Adapted from The Kitchn

For 3 to 4 people

2 Granny Smith apples 
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 large shallots, sliced
0.5 pound medium parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch thick rounds
0.5 teaspoon ground coriander
2.5 cups or more chicken broth or vegetable broth
3 large sprigs of thyme, leaves de-stemmed

1/4 pound aged pecorino, shaved, such as Pecorino Romano, or Pecorino Ginepro

Peel and core the apples, then cut them into 1-inch pieces. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and sauté until softened, about four minutes. Add parsnips and sauté for four more minutes. Add the apple pieces and coriander and stir for one minute, then add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are very tender, about 25 minutes. You can add more broth if the soup is too thick.

Allow the soup to cool slightly. Purée until smooth with a blender. Return soup to pot and bring to simmer. Season to taste with salt, pepper, shaved pecorino, and thyme leaves.

Shipping Details


If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
