For the preparation of this puree, you need half a kilo of parsnips and 2-3 carrots which need to be cooked for around 15 minutes. When the vegetables are cooked, drain them and add 3 tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Finally, blend everything well. You will get mixture with incredible color and interesting distinctive flavor that is rich in many vitamins and minerals.
