Cauliflower, Parsnip + Apple Puree

Here are 3 reasons to make this recipe:

1.  It basically needs 3 ingredients and it tastes like heaven.

2. It’s a much healthier (and may we dare say, tastier?) alternative to mashed potatoes.

3. All the ingredients are in season, making it THE perfect Thanksgiving side dish.

Cauliflower, Parsnip & Apple Puree
Servings: 6-8
Time: 25 minutes

  • 1 apple
  • 3 parsnips
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh herbs, as garnish


Cut up the apple, parsnips and cauliflower into bite size pieces. Then put them into a steamer and steam for 12-15 minutes until very soft.  Test with a fork, if it goes through with ease, they are done.

Transfer cauliflower, parsnip and apple to a food processor, add butter, salt and pepper and blend until smooth.  Adjust to taste and garnish with fresh herbs.
