Ingredients (6 people)
Parsnip Purée
1 lbs. Parsnip
1/2 lbs. Potatoes
1/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 cup Parmigiano Reggiano (grated)
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Pepper (white)
Crispy Parsnip Ribbons
2 cups Vegetable Oil
Salt (to taste)
Balsamic Caramel (for drizzling)
Directions
  1. Peel the parsnips and cut them into ½-inch slices. Peel the potatoes and cut them in half. Cook the parsnips and potatoes in boiling salted water until both are cooked through and easily pierced with a fork, then drain them. Heat the milk and cream together in a saucepan.
  2. Mash the vegetables and gradually add the milk and cream, stirring until you have a smooth purée. Add the Parmigiano Reggiano to the purée. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Keep warm.
  3. To make Parsnip Ribbons: Peel the two remaining parsnips. Using a julienne or regular vegetable peeler, make long ribbons of parsnip. Dry the ribbons on paper towels.
  4. Heat the oil in a saucepan until hot but not smoking, about 350° F. Add the parsnip ribbons and fry them until golden and crisp. Drain on paper towels and season lightly with salt. (This can be done a few hours in advance of preparing the rest of the dish.)
  5. To serve, spoon the parsnip purée into a serving dish. Drizzle the Balsamic Caramel over the parsnips and top with crispy fried parsnip ribbons.
