Truffled Parsnip Puree

Cooking Light
A teaspoonful of truffle oil goes a long way in this smooth side dish. Parsnips render a pleasantly sweet taste. If you prefer less sweetness, use two pounds potatoes and two pounds parsnips.
12 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)


+ Add To Shopping List
3 1/2 cups organic vegetable broth (such as Swanson Certified Organic)
3 cups 1% low-fat milk
4 pounds parsnips, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces (about 12 cups)
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon white truffle oil


Combine first 3 ingredients in a large Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until tender. Remove parsnips from the pan using a slotted spoon, reserving 1 1/2 cups cooking liquid. Place parsnips in a food processor. With processor on, slowly add reserved 1 1/2 cups cooking liquid; process until smooth. Add butter, salt, pepper, and garlic; process until combined. Spoon mixture into a bowl; stir in oil.
