Parsnip-Apple Purée


  • 1 pound parsnips, peeled and roughly chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste (divided)
  • 3 tablespoons ghee
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 green apples, peeled, cored, and grated


    Step 1

    Add water to a large pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the parsnips and a pinch of salt. Make sure the water covers the parsnips by at least 1 inch. Boil until fork tender, about 15 minutes.

    Step 2

    In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the ghee and coconut milk with the ground coriander, nutmeg, and garlic powder. Simmer and keep warm, but do not boil.

    Step 3

    Drain the parsnips and place them in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add in the grated apples and warm ghee mixture. Beat until light and fluffy. Season generously with sea salt and ground pepper.

    Note: Apples should be used immediately after grating. If not, soak in lemon-infused water until ready to use.
