Parsnips aren’t just for roasting. Make this delicious spicy parsnip and potato mash by boiling the parsnips and potatoes until tender.
Drain, add the butter and cream, cayenne pepper and cinnamon, and mash.
Top, if you want, with finely sliced friend onions to which you’ve added cinnamon, chilli and a squeeze of lime.
This spicy mash is lovely on top of a shepherd’s pie or to accompany lamb chops.
