Ginger-Lime Parsnips

Well, this was ridiculously simple for how tasty it turned out.  There isn't much else to say about it... except, enjoy!

4 servings
20 minutes prep time

450 grams (1 pound) parsnips
1/4 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
the juice of 1 large lime
2 tablespoons finely minced preserved or candied ginger
1 tablespoon butter
salt & pepper

Peel the parsnips and cut them into slices. Put them in a pot with water to cover, and boil them  until tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Drain well, keeping them in the pot.

Add in the lime zest and juice, the ginger, the butter, and season with just a shake each of salt and pepper, and mash thoroughly. Return to the stove, stirring frequently, until all the moisture is absorbed.

Oh nice! I love parsnips but have been getting a little bored with them lately. Love ginger so looking forward to giving this a go.
