Carrot and Parsnip Whip

  • by

My husband isn’t a big fan of carrots, but when I put these to items together and blend the crap of them he will eat it.

1 pound carrots
1 pound parsnips
1 small onion
1 cup vegetable broth
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Put olive oil and onions in the pan and saute until brown about 3-5minutes. Peel and cut the carrots, and parsnips into 1/2  inch pieces; peel and cut the onion into 1 inch pieces.
Put the carrots, parsnips, onion, and vegetable broth in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat immediately and cover; simmer slowly for 20 to 25 minutes or until the veggies are tender.

Drain the vegetables through a colander over a bowl, reserving broth.

Put vegetables, coconut oil, nutmeg, and 1/4 cup of the reserved broth in your food processor or blender ( I use the Vitamix) and ‘puree’ until smooth and whipped.  Add more reserved broth if you want to make the puree thinner.

Serve immediately in small bowls as a side dish loaded with nutrition. The flavors will develop more if you refrigerate overnight, then just reheat slowly in a saucepan before serving.

This also may be turned into soup by just adding more reserved broth to the food processor. You can add some protein to it but add in some smooth tofu.
