Buttery parsnips are a perfect accompaniment to a holiday meal. Sweeter in flavor than carrots, this side dish is sure to please your guests.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook parsnips in boiling, salted water to cover in a large saucepan 30 minutes or until tender. Drain.

Step 2

Process half each of parsnips, butter, broth, and half-and-half in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Spoon mixture into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining parsnips, butter, broth, and half-and-half; stir in salt and pepper.

Chef's Notes

Like potatoes, parsnips quickly turn brown when exposed to air, so place in water straight away to avoid oxidation.
