1 1/2 pounds
carrots, coarsely chopped
parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
butter, diced and softened
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
I made this instead of mashed potatoes and it was absolutely delicious. It has a nice, delicate flavor. So easy to make, too.
I have made parsnip puree before so I thought I'd try this recipe. Not very good.
This was great, I did not blend it though (I was wanted texture to the dish) so I hand mashed the veggies and it was a super side dish that was lighter than mashed potatoes and a nice change from plain carrots-thanks for the recipe, will include it in the rotation.
My family is from Ireland and I grew up with this recipe. As kids we used to call it Carsnips and Parrots. This combo is great in a soup too.
We LOVED this recipe. The only change I made was to add about 1 Tbsp of real maple syrup when I was blending..apart from that, I kept it the same. It was absolutely delish!
I usually roast parsnips, leeks, carrots and garlic Thats my favorite;This turned out great tasted like my sweet potato mix for pies nice.
I only used carrots in this (I had some left over that I wanted to use up) and they still turned out great. It's so simple, but much better tasting and more interesting than just boiling carrots. I think I will try a little less butter next time. Will definitely make this again.
De...licious! Just like my grandma used to make. Brought back many memories.
