Nightshade free, vegan and paleo, this roasted AIP Parsnip and Carrot mash is the perfect side dish for everything from quick weeknight meals to hearty holiday dinners.
I surprised myself with how delicious this AIP Parsnip and Carrot mash is! This is because for the longest time I didn’t like parsnips. Their taste is difficult to explain; earthy and sweet and yet also spicy. It wasn’t until a couple months ago that I discovered that roasting parsnips is a game changer! Through roasting, that distinctive spiciness seems to mellow and their naturally nutty taste is amplified. The longer you roast them, the sweeter they become.
In this AIP Parsnip and Carrot Mash, parsnips are oven roasted with their beloved cousins carrots for a delightfully sweet and creamy mash that you’ll hardly believe is vegan.
This recipe also includes dried thyme, sea salt, a whole head of garlic. Thyme is a perfect accompaniment to balance the warm and earthy notes of the carrots and parsnips. The garlic is drizzled with olive oil and roasted alongside the carrots and parsnips until it has a mild and sweet flavour. The soft, caramelized garlic is then blended in with the roasted roots at the end. It’s seriously so yummy!
