Creamed Parsnips with siggi's and a {Giveaway} 4/7/14


**Disclosure: As a siggi's ambassador, I have received complimentary product to sample. No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.

Lately, we have been on a root vegetable kick, exploring ones that are relatively new to us. The parsnip has quickly become one of our favorites. It is pretty easy to work with---think carrot--and has a nice, sweet flavor. Recently, I became an ambassador for siggi's so I thought this would  the perfect opportunity to be a little adventurous with the parsnip. I love, love, love siggi's skyr! Blending it with a parsnip seemed to be a no-brainer!



I have blogged about skyr in the past. Skyr is a traditional Icelandic yogurt. It is a bit different than yogurt common in the U.S. Skyr is quite a bit thicker and has a richer, cheesier flavor than your average cup of yogurt. This really makes skyr as a great ingredient for cooking. Siggi Hilmarsson, an Icelander living in New York, began making skyr after missing his favorite childhood treat. By using high quality, natural ingredients, Siggi created a healthy product that also tastes indulgent. Siggi's skyr is a treat--without the junk!

A couple of nights ago, we made some creamed parsnips with siggi's. We loved them! Here is the simple recipe:



Ingredients:

1 large parsnip
1 5.3 oz package of plain siggi's skyr
2 tsp basil olive oil
1 tsp freshly minced garlic
1/4 tsp ground cumin

Directions:

Wash, peel and cut parsnip. I cut my in 2 inch cubes. Next, boil your parsnip until soft. {Mine took about 20 minutes.} Drain and place parsnip in glass bowl. Hand mash. Mash in 1/3 cup of siggi's. Mix in olive oil, garlic and cumin. You can adjust spices to taste. Voila--creamed parsnips a la siggi's!
