Carrot and Parsnip Mash – A Dairy-Free Spicy Mash

A dairy-free mash made with as much carrot as parsnip and flavoured with cumin, chilli and nutmeg. The creamy texture of this dairy-free carrot and parsnip mash is coming from a slight amount of fresh olive oil.  This recipe is the perfect combination with the millet cakes recipe here.

Carrot and Parsnip Mash – A Sweet Toddler Mash

I think all mums wants their kids to eat more vegetables. But it is not always easy to find a perfect mix of vegetables that suit their taste. I found this carrot and parsnip mash perfect for toddler. Carrot and parsnip are really sweet vegetables which makes them attractive for kids. My 16 month girl loves the mix of spice in this carrot and parsnip mash and also the  flashy orange colour. Yes unfortunately I noticed that even at this small age she starts to be reluctant to brown dark food colour. I did not use much chilli so it was too spicy for her small age and you can also chose to remove the chilli powder form the recipe for younger kids. Another good point about this carrot and parsnip mash is the add of fresh virgin olive oil. It brings lots of good fat to your kid meal by adding some extra omega-3.
