If you’re looking for something new for this holiday season, here is something very yummy you can make that is also healthy for you! It is also dairy-free, gluten/wheat-free, soy-free, egg-free and sugar-free, but full of taste! It is semi-sweet, smooth and has a hint of parsnip. My husband, Dave, and I created it together. Enjoy!
6 carrots, peeled and sliced
4 parsnips, peeled and sliced
1 small sweet potato, peeled and sliced
2 cups organic, gluten-free chicken broth (Imagine is gluten-free)
1/2 can of coconut milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
dash of nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1-2 tsp agave or maple syrup
- In a medium saucepan, steam the carrots, parsnips and sweet potato in a steamer basket and about 2 inched of water. Steam for about 10-15 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
- Transfer cooked veggies to a blender. (You can also use a blending wand right in the saucepan without the steamer basket.) Add the chicken stock and coconut milk and blend until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until thoroughly mixed. It should be thick but you can add more stock if you want it more soupy.
- Serve and enjoy!
