This dish is still widely made in Ireland - it is sometimes called "Green, white and Gold" or "Sunshine". Lovely flavor combination with the carrots and parsnips

Thanks for reminding me of an old family favourite that my mum often made. My youngest son had never eaten it , and really enjoyed it. It's a lovely winter veg, so sweet and tasty.
