Creamy Puréed Parsnips bring silky smooth texture to this naturally sweet, earthy root vegetable with rosemary infused oil for a pop of piney herbaceous flavor.



Creamy Puréed Parsnips

  • 1 pound parsnips, peeled and quartered¹
  • 1 ¾ cup milk
  • 1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper

Rosemary Oil

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary


Creamy Puréed Parsnips

  1. In a medium saucepan, add parsnips, milk, butter, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Once a boil is achieved, reduce heat to low.  Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes until parsnips are soft and easily pierced with a fork.
  3. Removed from heat.  Using a handheld immersion blender, purée the milk and parsnip mixture until creamy and smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Optional: garnish with fresh rosemary oil.

Rosemary Oil

  1. Add oil and rosemary to a small sauté pan or sauce pan.  Simmer over low heat for 5 to 8 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Let cool 10 minutes before using.


¹If some of the parsnips are large, cut into similar sizes to smaller pieces for even cooking.
