Roughly Mashed Parsnips with Olive Oil and Parmesan

Luxurious and nourishing, a Winter dish

Roughly Mashed Parsnips with Olive Oil and Parmesan

Parsnips are a wonder in winter – slightly sweet, beautifully tender. Once Spring comes, parsnips become more woody and starchy and are less successful. Make this mash when parsnips are at their peak. It is deliciously indulgent and nourishing.
