Carrot and Parsnip Puree

Trying to eat healthier but always going for the mashed potatoes? Here’s a recipe that may kick that craving since it is close to the same texture but obviously much more healthy for you. You can use just carrots or just parsnips to make this; I decided to combine them both.


Salt and pepper to taste
All natural butter, I used about 2 tablespoons
Scallions – chopped

Peel the carrots and the parsnips and cut into 1-2 inch pieces
Add to boiling water and cook about 10-15 minutes or until a fork easily passed through them
Drain and add the carrots and parsnips back into the pot
Season with salt and pepper
Mash with a masher and butter until all combined
Add chopped scallions to taste
