Roasted Parsnip Puree

by on January 1, 2012 · 1 comment

Need an easy side dish idea for your next dinner party or meal? Try parsnips. I grew up on parsnips, well usually parsnips and carrots together. We like to think of them as the sweetness of a carrot married to the creaminess of a potato, making them perfect for roasting and then turning into a creamy puree. The addition of cream and nutmeg make this perfect to go alongside beef, lamb or roasted chicken. In fact, we love this with Lavender Honey Chicken.

We made this for maché magazine’s holiday issue, you really should check it out.

Parsnips are such a wonderful vegetable, think the sweetness of a carrot and the creaminess of a potato. Make this ahead of time and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, just reheat just before serving.
