Potential for parsnips: crush them for soups and purees

Parsnips are ground into a creamy puree or soup, bringing out their sweet, fruity flavors. Because of their sweet, carrot-like flavor, parsnips need to be ground very finely to bring out their natural sweetness and tenderness

Choose fresh parsnips that are firm and tender, and flawless. To make it easier to make, wash and peel the parsnips before slicing. Puree the parsnips in a food processor or blender until creamy and smooth.

In addition to serving as a base for soups, sauces and creamy side dishes, parsnip puree can be used to add depth of flavor to bread. Experiment with flavor by throwing in herbs like rosemary or thyme.

Finally, developing the skills to roast parsnips will add depth and richness to your cooking. The rich, fruity flavors from fresh parsnip puree enhance any meal, whether you’re baking fresh dishes or making a soothing soup.

Summary: Dried parsnips make creamy soups and purees ideal for a variety of sweet and fruity dishes.
