I have been so intrigued by the wonderful parsnips available at the moment (see the soup that I made yesterday) that I made a great mash using them.
Parsnips cook quicker than the more dense carrots, so you can either add the parsnips a little time after the carrots, or, like me, love the texture of mashed parsnips with partly mashed carrots.
It is so very easy. Take about 2 or 3 good sized carrots and the same number of good sized parsnips. If they are small, use more. Peel and slice them, and steam or boil them together until cooked. Mash them together with a large piece of butter, about 1 – 1.5 Tblspns. Add salt and pepper and serve. Delicious.
