- Heat the oil in a heavy pan and saute the onions, celery and parsnip for 3 minutes.
- Add the cooked beans and stock and continue cooking until the vegetables are tender. Allow the soup to cool slightly and, using a food processor or hand blender, blend the soup until it is velvety smooth.
- Reheat the soup gently, gradually adding some of the bean liquid or a little water if it is too thick. Season to taste.
- To serve, transfer the soup into wide bowls. Garnish with fresh corinader and paprika. Toasted garlic croutons are lovely too.
