Parsnips and carrots pair wonderfully for this healthy and delicious puree!

Parsnip is a very interesting root vegetable, it has a mild taste, slightly sweet, it is rich in vitamins and minerals, contains a lot of fibers and is poor in calories.

This puree is delicious and very flavorful, I also liked the texture that did not come out too smooth, it will remain a bit grainy. For a smoother puree, you should add 1 potato.

This parsnip and carrot puree is an interesting side, with a new flavor that I trust will be liked by most. The fact that it is poor in calories and rich in fibers adds to the pleasure of savoring it.

I had parsnips for the first time last year and fell in love with them! So peppery and sweet! They must be lovely with the carrots! Thanks for sharing, Patty!

Thanks Beth! I also discovered parsnips about 2-3 years ago, they're delicious and so filling, although very low calorie ;):D
