Creamy Parsnip Puree with Shallots
Why This Recipe Works
Extensive testing indicated that pureeing is the best use for sweet and rich parsnips. We got the best flavor for our parsnip recipe by steaming, not boiling, the parsnips before pureeing. You can puree parsnips with any of the tools you use to mash potatoes. However, because they are not as high in starch as potatoes, they can also be pureed in a food processor without turning into a gummy mess.
