Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the parships and cook until tender when pierced with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain the parsnips in a colander and let them steam under a clean kitchen towel for about 5 minutes.
  2. Return the parsnips to the pot and mash them with a potato masher, keeping them rather rough. Stir in the crème fraiche, butter, lemon zest and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a warm serving bowl, sprinkle with the chopped herbs, and serve.
