About this recipe: A delicious and simple side dish, which goes well with roasted meats. Parboiled carrots and parsnips are blitzed with butter and seasonings until smooth.
I made this instead of mashed potatoes and it was absolutely delicious. It has a nice, delicate flavor. So easy to make, too. - 22 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family is from Ireland and I grew up with this recipe. As kids we used to call it Carsnips and Parrots. This combo is great in a soup too. - 09 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was great, I did not blend it though (I was wanted texture to the dish) so I hand mashed the veggies and it was a super side dish that was lighter than mashed potatoes and a nice change from plain carrots-thanks for the recipe, will include it in the rotation. - 12 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
