Today I am sharing some side dishes that you can add to your Christmas dinner or any Sunday roast.
Parsnip Purée with Maple Syrup:
Servings: 8 portions
- 500g baby potatoes, unpeeled and cut in half
- 500g parsnip, peeled and sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 80g butter
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 500ml chicken broth
- 60ml pure maple syrup from Canada
- 150g Le Fou du Roy cheese (or a similar firm cheese), grated
- Pinch of ground nutmeg
- 60g chives, chopped
- In a large pan, fry the potatoes, parsnip and garlic in the butter over a low heat for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the stock and bring to the boil.
- Reduce the heat, cover and leave to cook for 25 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Strain (reserve some of the cooking liquid). Add the maple syrup to the casserole dish and mash the vegetables with a pestle.
- Add the cheese, some broth (if needed to loosen the purée), and sprinkle with the nutmeg and chives.
