Ingredient Notes For This Parsnip Purée with Garlic and Herbs:
Parsnips – This is a root vegetable that is closely related to carrot and parsley. It is sweeter in flavor and can be treated more like potatoes due to their starchier texture. So they can be roasted, mashed or fried. I just love parsnips!
Milk – Use oat milk or milk of choice. (I make my own oat milk, because it is so much better for me). And in my opinion, the oat flavor is very subtle – I can’t tell.
Parsnip Purée with Garlic and Herbs is a delicious alternative side dish for any meal. So please give this recipe a try. I think you will love it!
