Mashed Parsnips

[center]Mashed Parsnips [/center]
Another great alternative to mashed potatoes: mashed parsnips.

Ingredients

2 pounds of parsnips, peeled and cut into smaller chunks
1 cup of chicken broth/stock
Pink sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Options: omega-3 or natural butter, half-n-half, cinnamon, nutmeg

Instructions:

  1. Combine parsnips with chicken broth and about a cup of water. Cover and simmer until they get very soft, 25 minutes or so.

  2. Drain off the broth but save some of it. Mash parsnips with a potato masher or a fork, add salt and pepper, then add just enough broth back in until you get a mashed potato-like texture.

  3. Add the options you want. Cinnamon and nutmeg work great here; some prefer a little half-n-half or a pat of butter. Stir and enjoy.

Action shot.

And here’s what you’ll look for at the grocery store in case parsnips are new to you. Think “carrots that don’t get out much.”

I think I’ll have to pick some of these up tomorrow. Heading to the store anyway.
