  • Ingredients

    4 large carrots, peeled and sliced horizontally into coins (4)

    2 large parsnips, peeled and sliced horizontally into coins (2)

    1 Tbsp canola oil (15 mL)

    1 Tbsp orange zest (15 mL)

    1 Tbsp orange juice (15 mL)

    1 tsp fresh ginger, grated (5 mL)

    ½ tsp salt (2 mL)

  • Directions
    1. In a medium saucepan fitted with a steamer basket, bring water to a boil.
    2. Place carrots and parsnips in the steamer basket, cover and let steam until soft, about 10-15 minutes. (A fork should be able to slide in and out very easily).
    3. Remove from the steamer basket and place in a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and puree with an immersion blender until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, puree with a food processor fitted with the steel blade attachment.
