Only the second time I've ever had parsnips, and I think their lemony zing goes really well with the carrots in this dish. I used seasoning salt rather than regular, and forgot to add nutmeg, will have to dust the leftovers and try it that way later... I was in the minority with this one tho, and will probably only make it when there are others around to help me eat it. My 8 year old tried this one (took 3 bites to make sure) and didn't care for it. The 5 year old wouldn't try it, and my oldest (also known as my husband) took one look at it and refused to put any on his plate. Their loss. ;-) Next time I would make this more like mashed potatoes with a splash of cream to smooth it out a bit more, but good as is. Thanks for sharing.
I really enjoyed this recipe. I added about 1/8 cup of cream and a dash of cinnamon. The flavors blended well and my children didnt complain about having to eat their vegetables. Thank you for a great recipe.
I have been eating this combination of vegetables for years thanks to my MIL...but had not idea that there was a name for this dish! This combination is terrific! I usually cook mash the 2 together and serve as is with butter, salt and pepper...no nutmeg. Lovely and sweet and very healthy! Thanks so much for posting this one....now I have a name for one of my favourite vegetable dishes !
This recipe takes me back to my childhood....my Irish mother used to make it with amazing regularity. Back then we just called it "Carrots and Parsnips"...not very imaginitive! I still use it to this day, but but not quite as as often as she did. There is something about these 2 veggies mixed together that brings out the best in both of them. I just mash them....the lumps give a nice bit of texture.
