Parsley Scones recipe, brought to you by MiNDFOOD.

Come in from the cold, huddle up and celebrate winter with a steaming mug of soup and a soft squidgy scone to dip inside.

Serves 4

3 cups self-raising flour

2/3 cup grated cheddar

1/3 cup coriander or flat-leaf parsley

leaves, finely chopped

¾ cup milk

½ cup vegetable oil, extra

2 eggs

2 tbsp cumin seeds

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 large brown onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp curry powder

1.2 kg carrots, peeled, trimmed, sliced

4 cups chicken or vegetable stock

4 cups water

1 Preheat oven to 220˚C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine self-raising flour, cheese and coriander in a large bowl. Whisk milk, oil and eggs in a large jug. Add to dry ingredients and gently stir with a flat-edged knife until ingredients are just combined. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Form dough into a 4cm-thick rectangular shape. Transfer to prepared tray. Using a large sharp knife, mark dough into 16 square scones. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

2 Heat a small frying pan over a medium heat. Add cumin seeds and cook for 1 minute or until seeds are golden and begin to pop. Transfer to a small bowl. Heat extra oil in a large deep saucepan. Add onion, garlic, curry powder and half the cumin seeds. Cook 
for 3 minutes or until onion is 
soft. Add carrots and stir until 
well combined. Cook, stirring for 
3 minutes, or until light golden.

3 Pour stock and water over vegetables. Bring to the boil and simmer for 35 minutes or until soft. Using a puree wand, puree soup. Season. Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle remaining cumin seeds onto soup. Serve with scones.
