Put 3 cups of water and pinch of salt in a large pot and bring it to a boil. Meanwhile peel and wash the carrots, parsnips, onion, celery and apples. Cut everything in big pieces and put them in the pot along some whole lovage leaf. Let them simmer for about 20 mins. When the veggies are tender, take them out and put everything in a blender, except the onion and lovage. Add the coconut milk and blend well. If you want your soup to be more liquid, add more veggie broth. Add the other spices and more salt if you feel like it.
Serve with fresh leaves of valerian salad and sprinkle some sumac powder. You may also add some hot chilli peppers- it is be perfect for this cold winter.
