Pureed Parsnips

Pureed Parsnips

1 ½ pounds raw, peeled parsnips, cut into small chunks
½ cup of heavy cream
1 generous knob of butter
½ of a good vanilla beanParsnip_puree

Gently warm the heavy cream and add the vanilla bean, letting it steep.

Boil the chunks of parsnips in salted water. When very tender, drain and either put the parsnips in a blender, or back into the pot if you are using a stick blender.

Scrape the vanilla bean into the heavy cream  and slowly add to the parsnips as  you blend. Add the butter. Puree until you have a velvety smooth texture.  Taste and add some more salt if necessary.
