Are you making this? 
3 Parsnips; Pealed and cut to squares
1 bushel Spinach
Coconut Milk

Original recipe makes 3 Servings



Peal and cut the parsnips to smaller pieces so they cook sooner. Put the pieces into a large pot with water and some salt. Bring the pot to a boil and then simmer for 20-25 minutes. When the parsnips are near ready, steam the spinach for a few minutes.

Strain the parsnips and mash them in the pot. I like to use a large fork; my fiance prefers a food mixer. Add a little coconut milk to help the mixing process and make it creamy. Add the steamed spinach. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a little cinnamon sprinkled on top.


I find that parsnips need more salt to get to a good flavor than potatoes.

This works great with:
