Puréed Parsnips

These Puréed Parsnips are so easy to make.   Parsnips don’t get the love they deserve in my opinion!

Parsnips are a bit like cilantro I think – you either love ’em or you hate ’em!  I had forgotten about them for a while til my friend gave me this Roasted Parsnip and Pear Soup.

Now I can’t get enough of them.

Parsnips can taste sweet and kind of perfumey. If you are worried about the  taste being too strong many people serve them half and half with carrots to tone them down a bit.

They are also delicious roasted alone or with other root vegetables!

I still have some in my fridge so that might be a recipe for another day!

This recipe is so simple it will make a really easy side vegetable.

Winter is the perfect time for parsnips. They get sweeter after they have had some frosts!
