Happy Friday. The weekend is almost here and today the children break up for the Easter holiday, all go from now on, hopefully!! I must quickly plan some days out and holiday fun!!

Today I have an easy peasy recipe to share with you.

Fancy making and trying out this cheesy parsnip mash recipe? A nice side dish to accompany your Sunday roast. Or serve with warm chicken breasts and salad for lunch!? The possibilities are endless.

Our flavour packed cheesy mash will convince even the fussiest of eaters to devour their veg.- Primula Original Cheese.

An alternative to potatoes, this recipe has a cheesy twist.  Oven cooked the parsnips in oil and seasonings until soft and combine the cheese and parsnips in a food processor until smooth.

    Parsnips are a wonderful vegetable, and I use them interchangeably with potatoes in lots of recipes. I like the idea of adding thyme to a parsnip mash. Going to give that a try. And of course, who doesn't love cheese!
