Melt the butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add green onions and yellow onions, and sauté until tender. Stir in parsnips, Yukon gold potatoes, and sweet potatoes, and continue cooking for 3 minutes. Stir in vegetable broth. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let mixture simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and let mixture cool for 5 minutes. Pour into a high-powered blender and puree until smooth. Return soup to stockpot. Stir in half-and-half, and bring soup back to a simmer to warm through.
