Healthy Recipes for Dinner

It's time to master some seriously delicious (but honestly healthy) dishes. Here's 7 to get you started:


Parsnip Mashed Potatoes

Parsnip Mashed Potatoes- Description It started with parsnips. Lately, it seems like every cooking show I watch, they’re doing something with parsnips. I’d never even heard of parsnips before last month, and now they’re everywhere. I suppose that’s how it always goes. So what is a parsnip? Parsnips are a root vegetable; they look like white carrots, only less sweet. So, I decided that for my first parsnip dish, I’d go with something I mastered long ago.


What Is Parsley Root Good For?

Parsley is a member of the carrot family that includes celery, fennel, anise and dill. Parsley root is light beige, shaped like a carrot, but slender like a parsnip. The flavor is described as a taste between celery and carrots with a little parsley leaf and turnip. Parsley root has a more delicate, sweeter and more herbal taste than a parsnip....

Parsnips by Cookthinker, via Flickr... just in case you didn't know what a parsnip looked like. They are quite sweet when roasted, baked, steamed, or boiled. Can be served just like mashed potatoes. Tasty!!

If you've ever had a craving for a dish with turnips, rutabagas, celery root, potatoes, and parsnips all-in-one, this cheesy and creamy vegetable gratin recipe is just what you're after.

Slow cooker pot roast Hi everyone, @epicureannie here with my last recipe for you. I love this recipe because A) comfort food and the kids love it B) everything goes in the pot and it's ready when you get home from a long day and "what's for dinner?" is the last thing you want to think about. I served mine with a parsnip purée (recipe follows celery root purée posted a few days ago) because I already added potatoes in the crock pot, but anything goes great, cauliflower mash, white sweet…

Do you try to cook with in-season produce year round? We do! I love parsnips which are in season most of the year...they are fantastic roasted with a medley of carrots with olive oil, salt and pepper and maple syrup. Foodland Ontario is a great site that lets you know what is in season now.

Better Than Mashed Potatoes?! Whipped Parsnip and Cauliflower with Kale. I know what you’re thinking: What is this blasphemy?! I mean, how can you really improve a cozy comfort food like mashed potatoes—especially if the “improvement” doesn’t even contain potatoes at all? I promise I’m not just spewing crazy nonsense. I may be a tyrannical dietary dictator or something, but this dish actually wins in my book.
