I’ve never tried parsnips. I’ve determined, I’m really not very open to trying new things, so I decided I’d try new things out. I was flipping through a magazine and found this carrot and parsnip puree, so I thought it would be a perfect recipe to try, since I was a little weird about trying new things anyway. Let me tell you this recipe was a total FAIL. I HATE parsnips. They had this weird taste and I was completely grossed out. No one in my house would eat it. No amount of seasoning could have made this better. It was enough to make me want to puke. Needless to say, I wont ever be making this recipe again.
8 Parsnips, peeled and sliced thickly
2 carrots, peeled, cut into 2 inch pieces
1/4 cup chives, or green onion stalks
6 Tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
boil veggies in a covered, salted watered pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce and simmer. Drain, add chives, or onion stalks, butter, salt, and pepper. Puree with an immersion blender until smooth.
