Ingredients

  • 1 pound parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound pears, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions

Place the parsnips, pears, maple syrup, orange zest, orange juice, cardamom, salt, and clove into a microwave safe, sealable 3 to 4 quart container.

Add the lemon juice and puree to your desired consistency using an immersion blender. Serve warm or chilled. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days, refrigerated.
