I made a potato, parsnip (and 1 apple) soup. I put in a "bunch of parsley tied in a packet." The soup is too powerful. I am not sure if it is the parsnip (since I do not typically eat these,) or the parsley. Any suggestions to "soften" that strong flavor?
More potatoes and another apple - dilute (assuming "too strong" is really too strong, and not a just an unfamiliar flavor you would not like even if it was reduced. Parsnips can be polarizing.)
Or add garlic and/or ginger until they overpower the parsnip and parsley (assumes you like garlic and/or ginger...) I guess chili might be another similar approach, but I wouldn't do that as I don't like it. I might add black pepper, though.
