ingredients

serves 4
10 oz [275 g) carrots
10 oz (275 g) parsnips
4 tablespoons semi-skimmed milk
3/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
2 teaspoons caster sugar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Sprigs of rosemary, thyme or parsley to garnish

method

1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Peel and trim the carrots and parsnips. Cut them up into similar-sized chunks and cook them in the boiling water for 10-12 minutes, or if you prefer you can steam them in a covered pan for 12-14 minutes, until tender.

2. Reserving a little of the cooking water, drain the vegetables and put them in a liquidiser (or use a potato-masher). Add the milk, nutmeg and sugar and puree the mixture.

3. If the mixture is still very thick add a couple of tablespoons of the reserved vegetable water. Then season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
