Carrot & Parsnip Mash

Boiling these two root vegetables together brings out the delicious sweetness of both.  When they are cooked to softness and mashed together they never fully incorporate with each other leaving a gorgeous mixture of the colors.  Served in a Fiestaware "Shamrock" serving bowl, you have all three colors of the Irish flag!

1 pound carrots
1 pound parsnips
salt and pepper
2 - 3 T. butter

Peel and dice the carrots and parsnips.  Put in a saucepan with cold, salted water just to cover.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently until the vegetables are completely tender, 15 - 20 minutes.  (Test them once or twice with a fork.)

Drain and add the butter to the pot.  Mash with a potato masher to a coarse puree and season with plenty of salt and pepper.
