1. Clean all vegetables. Peel the tomatoes and press them through a strainer or sieve, retaining the juice. Discard the tomato solids. Set the juice aside.

2. Peel and chop the potatoes. Grate or finely chop the carrots, parsley root and onion.

3. In a large pot, heat the butter over a medium flame. Add the chopped carrot, parsley root, and onion and lightly sauté the vegetables in the butter. Stir the flour into the vegetable mixture. Slowly add the water to the pot, stirring constantly. Add the potatoes and a dash of salt and pepper. Simmer until the potatoes are tender.

3. Once the potatoes have softened, add the tomato juice and sour cream. Sprinkle with parsley flakes and adjust spices to taste. Serve warm with an extra dollop of sour cream.
