Attempting to make up for lost time with another recipe post today. These have been a great way for me to get filled up and packed with fiber and nutrients.
*update (8/31/15) these are no longer ok for me, due to the butter. :/ I will probably make another version at some point that uses something instead of butter, but for now just know this recipe is not safe for IBS and/or GERD/Acid Reflux/Heartburn due to the fat content.*
Parsnips don’t really taste much different than potatoes, but are lower calorie, lower carb, higher fiber alternatives. Turnips are even better, with even lower calorie and carb counts and higher fiber, but they have a fairly strong taste. Because of this, I don’t like eating them on their own. When mixed with parsnips, though, the unique flavors combine together to make something thoroughly delicious.
My favorite way to eat these is to put some chopped up Rotisserie chicken in them and eat it for lunch, but they make an excellent side dish as well. I’m already thinking ahead to the holidays and think I’ll be making these for Thanksgiving this year in lieu of regular mashed potatoes.
