  • 1 head cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • 4 large parsnips (peeled and cut into chunks)
  • 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup gluten-free chicken broth (or vegetable broth if vegan)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives (chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (or to taste)


  • Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, add parsnips. Continue to cook for about 5 minutes and then add the cauliflower. Cook for another 5 minutes, until parsnips and cauliflower are soft and able to stab a fork trough them. Drain water.
  • In the meantime, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant and lightly browned. Make sure to stir continually so the garlic does not burn.
  • Add hot parsnips, cauliflower, and garlic to a food processor or Vitamix. Blend until combined. Add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup chicken broth until you reach the desired consistency.
  • Place in a bowl and stir in salt, pepper and chives.
  • Serve.
