Serves 4

There are approximately 192 calories per portion

Ingredients:

700g of parsnips peeled and roughly chopped the same size

3 medium-sized leeks ( about 500g ) trimmed and thinly sliced

2 medium cloves of garlic minced

2 teaspoons of chopped fresh rosemary

1 teaspoon of wholegrain mustard

3 tablespoons of olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Put the parsnips into a saucepan and cover with water, add few pinches of salt and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until tender enough to mash.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the leeks, the garlic, and rosemary with some salt and pepper.
  3. When the leeks are sizzling, cover the pan, turn down the heat and let them sweat gently for 12-15 minutes stirring occasionally, until completely tender.
  4. Take the pan off the heat, and add the mustard. Stir thoroughly into the softened leeks.
  5. Drain the parsnips once cooked and let them steam in the colander for a few minutes, then tip them onto the pan with leeks. Use a fork or a masher and mash the whole thing together, but you don’t want it too smooth, let it be a bit chunky.
  6. Taste and add more salt or pepper if needed. Serve this yummy Healthier Vegan Leek & Parsnip Mash immediately.
