My Ahaaaa moment…Parsnip and butternut hash

Anyone tried low carbing? If you have, you must know (especially fans of India Knight & Neris Thomas From Pig to Twig http://www.pig2twig.co.uk)  there are recipes that transform your commitment to the cause, like steak with blue cheese sauce made with real double cream, real blue cheese and the juices from the steak pan OMG! This recipe is just as decadent, delicious and frankly feels like it can’t be paleo diet friendly but praise be, clap your hands and squeal with delight..it is!

For one starving gal or two with a salad, you will need:

2 parsnips, peeled and grated

1 leek cleaned, trimmed and grated

1/3 of a large butternut squash, peeled and grated

3 grinds of fresh back pepper

1 level tsp hot smoked paprika

2 pinches of sea salt

2 organic eggs

1 tbsp coconut oil

Opt. olive oil to drizzle

How to:

After cleaning, peeling and grating your veg simply mix together in a dish and season, mix again. Add the coconut oil to a sauté pan, once hot add your veg and move to get brown in parts.

Veggies at the ready

Make two wells and crack in your eggs, transfer from hob to oven if you like your eggs cooked all the way through like I do.

Eggs in...

Eggs in…

Season the eggs, drizzle with a little olive oil and serve in the pan on a heatproof mat on the table if sharing. If enjoying solo, plate as carefully as you can as it’s a pretty good looking dish and oink with delight that you have stuck to the paleo plan for yet another satisfying meal.

Pefection in a pan, you won't want to share!

Perfection in a pan, you won’t want to share!

  1. I love the sound of this. It’s the type of thing i’d make just for me when my husband is out as he hates leeks and squashes. It’s also the type of meal that you could so easily adapt too depending on what you find in the fridge and what spices you feel like using on a particular day.

    • Hi Corina – this recipe is so easy, you can use whatever roots and veg you have in the fridge too but I have to say, whatever mix I go with, smoked paprika and egg make it special, any time of day.
