RUN - do not walk to get parsnips! They are like white carrots - mine were pretty big and I used 4 large parsnips and 4 average sized carrots. OH MY GOODNESS - so GOOD. I used the immersion blender but just mixed them into a semi-chunky texture - butter and a bit of kosher salt and these are perfect!
I used half carrots half parsnips. Mine did not turn out very smooth because I probably slightly undercooked the vegetables (they were soft but still had texture) plus not owning an immersion blender I tried using a hand mixer - I SHOULD have dragged out my food processor! But it was still delicious a lovely change from our usual side dish. I'd like to experiment with different herbs or spices next time maybe add a teeny drop of honey or even maple syrup like I do when I roast these vegetables together.
We got some carrots and parsnips from our CSA so was looking for a recipe that used both. This fit the bill perfectly. I added just a touch of cinnamon for some extra flavor. Although my kids weren't thrilled with it my husband and I both enjoyed it. I will make this again should I find I have an abundance of these veggies once more.
By golly, this really was fabulicious! A great alternative to mashed potatoes, and very easy to make. Stayed w/ the 4:1 ratio of parsnips to carrots as called for by the recipe submitter, and glad we didn’t veer off course as the wonderful flavor of the parsnips shined through. The 8 medium and large sized parsnips weighed in at 2 pounds, and 8 ounces of baby carrots were used. We made the following ‘tweaks’: 2X snipped chives as listed, and added 2 tablespoons honey and a dash of nutmeg. Thank you ‘Always Cooking Up Something’ for a fantastic vegetable dish.
All I can say is...DELISH!! Hubby and I have been trying new veggies and neither of us had ever had parsnips. This is a great starter recipe and we didn't change anything. Will definatley make again soon.
