The dark and gloomy days of winter beg for warmth and comfort, and you deserve that! After all, it’s Saturday and you can finally slow down – but how do you show up for yourself? Maybe that means ditching your alarm clock and sleeping in with a cashmere throw, booking that overdue massage or melting into a beautiful meal with the people you love.
This parsnip puree fills damp and dreary days with comfort and beauty (and your picky two-year-old may even mistake them for mashed potatoes!). The parsnips have arrived in perfect time – their phytonutrients help combat oxidative stress and ward off colds and infections during these cold winter months. For a bonus shopping tip – choose the smaller varieties as they contain more phytonutrients. Plate with chopped kale, red quinoa and scallops to bring out their true beauty.
