1 quart vegetable stock
3 ribs celery, cut in large pieces
3 medium carrots, cut in large pieces
1 large parsnip, pared
5 sprigs fresh parsley

In 5-quart saucepan melt butter, sauté onions until goldern. Add remaining ingredients except dill. Cover, simmer about 45 minutes to one hour, or until vegetables are tender. Puree vegetables in blender or food processor, or grind in food mill. Return puree to broth, add dill and mix well. Heat and serve.
